Recovery-less Recovery: Unemployment Duration October 2012

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

Today's employment situation report showed that conditions for the long term unemployed worsened in October remaining epically distressed by historic standards.

Workers unemployed 27 weeks or more increased to 5.002 million or 40.6% of all unemployed workers while the median number of weeks unemployed climbed to 19.6 weeks and the average stay on unemployment rose to 40.2 weeks.

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.

  1. It can be described more roughly by the number of rooms. A studio apartment has a single bedroom with no living room (possibly a separate kitchen).
    A one-bedroom apartment has a living or dining room istanbul property separate from the bedroom. Two bedroom, three bedroom, and larger units are common.
    (A bedroom is defined istanbul properties as a room with a closet for clothes storage.)

  2. The size of an apartment or house can be described in square feet or meters. In the United States, this istanbul real estate includes the area of "living space",
    excluding the garage and other non-living spaces. The "square meters" figure of a house in Europe istanbul properties may report the total area of the walls enclosing the home,
    thus including any attached garage and non-living spaces, which makes it important to inquire what kind of surface definition has been used.
