The US has more unemployed people than any other country in the industrialized world, according to a new study.
It also has the world’s highest proportion in terms of people aged between 25 and 54 without a job.
According to the study, published by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the US had more than 1.4 million jobless people in October 2017, which equates to nearly 4.5% of the country’s population.
The US is the fifth largest economy in the Western world.
But this is actually a reflection of a very long history of joblessness in the US.
The BLS said that in 1900, just over 5% of workers in the country were unemployed.
It’s a different story today.
In a country where nearly half of the population is over 65 years old, the unemployment rate is higher than it was in the 1960s and 1970s, when the US economy was still struggling to recover from the Great Depression.
There are a lot of factors behind this rise in unemployment.
The economic downturn in the late 1970s and early 1980s was one of the worst in US history.
A severe economic downturn, a huge drop in the value of the dollar, and the collapse of the oil and gas industry are also contributing to the unemployment crisis.
In the first half of this century, there was a sharp rise in the number of people who were unemployed due to these factors.
But over the last decade, the number is still lower than it once was.
This is due to two factors.
First, there has been a sharp increase in the share of Americans working part-time or on “zero-hours contracts” over the past decade.
This trend has resulted in a significant drop in people who are officially counted as employed, meaning that they are not counted as working for a company, and thus are not included in BLS’s official unemployment statistics.
The second factor is that the US government’s jobless-to-population ratio has been stuck at around 5% since January 2021, which means that the population has actually increased.
This means that more people are unemployed now than were in January 2021.
It’s not the first time that the unemployment numbers have fluctuated in recent years.
In October 2017 and February 2018, the US was on track to have the highest unemployment rate in the developed world.
But that is not the case today.
The BLS study also found that the rate of unemployment in the state of California was nearly 4% in October, which was the highest rate in US state history.
