There are 13.9 million unemployed people in the U.S. – and that just counts those looking for work.
That works out to 9.1% of the labor force, the widely publicized unemployed rate.
But here are a few more ways to look at it:
- There are more unemployed people in the U.S. than there are people in the state of Illinois, the fifth largest state.
- In fact there, there are more unemployed people in the U.S. than there are people in 46 of the 50 states, all but Florida, New York, Texas and California.
- There are more unemployed than the combined populations of Wyoming, Rhode Island, Idaho, North Dakota, Alaska, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Hawaii, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and the District of Columbia.
- If they were a country, the 13.9 million unemployed Americans would be the 68th largest country in the world.
