Again, no. If she is "actively looking for work" she'd be counted. You can argue that the government is messing with what constitutes "actively," but that's entirely separate from (incorrectly) believing that her unemployment compensation, or lack thereof, has anything to do with it.
FWIW...If I recall correctly, SELF Employed people and those who worked for NON-Profits do NOT get Unemployment!
Why can’t they just divide the number of social security contributors by the census calculated number of people of working age?
If she doesn’t report to anybody but me if she were in fact looking, how would she be counted? Since we just moved from our previous location and are still settling in to our new one, nobody is looking for work but in any case we wouldn’t be reporting to anybody whether or not we are looking. Kind of one of those deals where if I need a job, I WILL get one. May not be CEO of a major corp but maybe just enough to offset medical costs a little bit. LOL!
