Obama Administration Unemployment Stats fudged 5.8%?






I downloaded and crunched the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a look at the years of  2007 to 2012 thus far (ending August as of this post).  What I found was that the Obama Administration is hiding the actual unemployment rate of 13.9%  (margin of error +/- .1%, that’s one-tenth of one percent) for August 2012, while fudging / lying that it is at 8.1%.  






To get this number of a 13.9% Unemployment Rate, I use the stats of what equals a .1% increase and a 1% increase in the Unemployment numbers issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in 2006, 2007, 2008 and apply it equally to the Obama Administration.  

In March 2009 the Not in Labor Force number was 81,358,000


In August 2012 the Not in Labor Force was 88,311,000 


This is an additional removal of 6,953,000 from the labor force.

These numbers are what Obama lost the United States in jobs thus far by his anti-business practices and policies, and the addition or reduction of jobs in the monthly unemployment numbers are already part of this calculation.

 Year ....Unemployment Rate....Not in Labor Force


2006. . . . . . . . . 4.6%....................77,387

2007. . . . . . . . . 4.6%....................78,743

2008. . . . . .. .  5.8%......................79,501

2009. . . . . . . . 9.3%.....................81,659

2010. . .. . ...  9.6%.....................83,941

2011. . . . . .. 8.9%......................86,001






United States Unemployment Actual percentages using the BLS own reports:

In 2009  - the reported average national unemployment rate was  9.3%

-         The actual average unemployment rate for the year was 9.3%



In 2010 – the Unemployment rate was mis-reported or fudged by the Obama Administration.
-         The reported average national unemployment rate was 9.6%
-         The actual average unemployment rate for  2010 was 10.9%
-         That’s a purposeful misreporting or falsified increase of 1.3% in the national unemployment rate for Obama’s political benefit.

In 2011 -  The reported average national unemployment rate was 8.9%
-         This decrease to the affirmative of .7% was done despite an unmistakable, and still reported  continual increase in the national unemployed by millions more.
-         The actual average unemployment rate for 2011 was 12.2%

As of August 2012,
 the reported average national unemployment rate was 8.1%
-         The actual average national unemployment rate as of August 2012 is 13.9%

These 13.9% are fully unemployed: the rate calculated by using the numbers of actual unemployed, and the same Unemployment Metric used formerly by the BLS in their own Unemployment statistics in 2007, 2008, 2009.  Increases in the number of unemployed does not decrease the unemployment rate in any legal or theoretical sense, except under Obama. 

The national number of unemployed that should be cited isn’t 24,000,000 as Clint Eastwood quoted recently at the Republican National Convention – it’s actually MUCH WORSE, at about 33,000,000. 


I encourage Certified Public Accountants and others interested in this topic to do their own research.  


[[[[[ Update: A Commercial was put out that shows the possible high end unemployment could be near 19%.   That is following the unadjusted metric for regular unemployed. If we were to have the under-employed added to the unadjusted metric,  we would be dealing with another variable that puts this nation well past an unadjusted 29% un and under-employment Depression threshold figure, not 19%. 

 It does not appear that we can as accurately account for who considers themselves as under-employed without perhaps using that statistical question as part of each Congressional voting cycle, or applying it to those increased on Food Stamps and Welfare.  Such a nightmarish figure can easily place us in or quite near the 40% range if we included those, and is so much worse than the commercial takes into account, we would be hard pressed to accept the figure, even though genuine.   Even I do not want to go there with such disparaging specifics until we have someone and some Administration looking to help America get back to work with deeds over rhetoric.
