Unemployment Numbers Breakdown

Brad DeLong gives us the real unemployment rate:

The real unemployment rate–the share of Americans who say that they are actively looking for work and don’t have jobs–has been drifting down since late spring–from 9.7% in June to 9.4% in November. The seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate over that same period has risen from 9.5% to 10.0%, as the actual unemployment rate has drifted down much more slowly than it usually drifts down from June to November as things pile up for the Christmas rush.
