Unemployment Rate by Age | The Reformed Broker

Unemployment Rate by Age | The Reformed Broker.

Are the mall jobs back? Can 16-17 year olds once again find gainful employment in the United States? if so, what are the ramifications for the cottage industry of Call Me Maybe parody videos?

I don’t know…

But let’s go to the charts though and see what the data said about US unemployment by age, courtesy of Floating Path:

Nearly all age groups improved their unemployment rates considerably in September.

  • 16 to 17: 25.3%, a whopping 4.0% better than the 29.3% in August.
  • 18 to 19: 22.8%0.1% higher than the 22.7% rate in August.
  • 20 to 24: 12.4%1.5% lower than the 13.9% in August.
  • 25 to 34: 8.1%0.2% lower than the 8.3% rate in August.
  • 35 to 44: 6.3%0.3% lower than the 6.6% rate in August.
  • 45 to 54: 6.1%0.3% lower than the 6.4% rate in August.
  • 55+ : 5.9%unchanged from August.

It’s a veritable rainbow of improvement. But can we keep it going?
