Underemployment Down Says Gallup

July 6, 2010 at 6:17 am Leave a comment

Underemployment, as measured by Gallup, fell to 18.3% of the U.S. workforce in June — down from 19.1% in May, and a new 2010 low. Gallup’s underemployment rate has two components: the percentage unemployed and the percentage of those working part time but wanting full-time work. It is reported on the basis of 30-day rolling averages and includes interviews with approximately 20,000 U.S. adults aged 18 and older in the workforce. Results are not seasonally adjusted and tend to be a precursor of government reports by approximately two weeks. Read the article here.
