"Nor do they include those who leave the 'employee' workforce to become self-employed, by starting their own enterprise."

Which would mean that they are employed, thus their not showing up in the count.

The self-employed do not show up anywhere. Their status doesn't show up in the unemployment rate, of course, but more importantly, the newly-self-employed are not counted in job creation. I'll say that again:

If an individual starts his own business, this is not counted as the creation of a job.
