Recovery-less Recovery: Unemployment Duration April 2012

Be sure to bookmark the "Scary Unemployment Dashboard"... it's live.

Today's employment situation report showed that conditions for the long term unemployed improved in April but remained epically distressed by historic standards.

Workers unemployed 27 weeks or more declined to 5.101 million or 41.3% of all unemployed workers while the median number of weeks unemployed declined to 19.4 weeks and the average stay on unemployment declined to 39.1 weeks, the highest level ever recorded.

Looking at the charts below (click for super interactive versions) you can see that today’s sorry situation far exceeds even the conditions seen during the double-dip recessionary period of the early 1980s, long considered by economists to be the worst period of unemployment since the Great Depression.
