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.

In Hoc.

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.
