    Wow. The 'nuts used to love to resort to the Gallup numbers when they weren't as good as the official government numbers;

    I'm guessing that manuever will now have lost its charm.

    Until they find a way to count the people off of unemployment benefits they can tell me anyone's numbers are correct. I have been off unemployment since May 12, 2012 and I have never been contacted in anyway so these numbers are completely false.

    They have a way to estimate that number and do, they just don't like to Remind of it. It's called UE6 and it remains 14.7%

    A polling firm determining unemployment numbers. There are stats to look at and we now know the recent numbers came about because a state was not accounted for. No one can give accurate numbers without counting all states and we need to take into consideration the number of people who have given up and no longer count in those numbers. The conclusion is only as good as the accuracy of the information given to begin with.
