How the unemployed ‘disappear’ and why it matters

In The Conversation (12.1.15), Rose-Marie Stabe and David Fryer explain why unemployment statistics mask the ‘discouraged’ job-seeker numbers: ‘… the official figure of unemployment underestimates the “real” figure of unemployment. For those of us who are interested in how unemployment contributes to the way we experience ourselves in the world, who is excluded from these figures is just as important as who is included.’
