Well, you've hit it exactly.

I think the vast majority of people believe the unemployment statistic is tabulated from an actual count of people unable to find work. The fact that it's based on a mail survey and then adjusted via a miracle equation is, unfortunately, little-known.

And, of course, though the survey, itself, is problematic, it's the miracle equation that really mucks things up.
