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.

The real question is what "labor component" is left out of the determination, which is the point. I understand "who" is considered unemployed...but the question put forth was "Is there a componenet of "unemployed" labor left out of the unemployment rate calculation?"

Yes, the BEA. w/o regard to the BLS, tracks all national economic statistics from manufacturing output to labor. usage...
