Is 73% for women and 62% for men according to Gallup International. These shocking numbers are a little over-inflated as they include people in the informal economy (e.g. traders or small farmers) that don’t have secure income but aren’t typically viewed as “unemployed.” While it’s unclear what the “real” unemployment rate is, it’s certainly higher than the official unemployment rate of 6% as reported in December 2011. The official rate is viewed as dramatically under-representative because the government essentially only counts those who are receiving unemployment assistance as “unemployed.” All those that don’t qualify for the assistance but are seeking jobs are not included. The IMF estimated an unemployment rate of 19% for 2011. While a high number, the number is only 0.3% higher than the IMF’s pre-economic crisis unemployment rate. This makes me think that the real unemployment rate is even higher than 19%.
