How do you know the BEA doesnt consider it a factor in determining those "out of the job search" when coming up with the unemployment rate? Granted, I have only heard second hand that it's a factor.
I've done some work with the BEA in the past, I'll call them and find out.

BEA? Why not BLS? "Persons are classified as unemployed if they do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the prior 4 weeks, and are currently available for work."Bureau of Labor Statisics
