A Closer Look

Out-of-Work in US – 11.3 million individuals

Of the combined unemployed and not-in-the-labor-force populations, our goal is to identify those most likely to be interested in or benefit from workforce development assistance. Therefore, we subtracted the following groups: people receiving retirement and disability benefits, most students, and our best estimate of people who choose to be stay-at-home parents with sufficient earnings from a spouse who works. These subtractions amount to 10 percent of the unemployed and 53 percent of those not in the labor force.

This leaves 11.3 million individuals defined as out-of-work (14 percent of the 25–64 year-old non-institutionalized civilian population.)

The seven major out-of-work groups

  1. Young, less-educated, and diverse
  2. Less-educated prime-age people
  3. Diverse, less educated, and eyeing retirement
  4. Motivated and moderately educated younger people
  5. Moderately educated older people
  6. Highly educated and engaged younger people
  7. Highly educated, high-income older people
