Introducing Regional Underemployment - Chmura
The unemployment rate in the United States is at historically low levels, coming in at 3.9% for July 2018, with many observers suggesting the nation is now at full employment. Despite the low unemployment rate, some questions remain about the state of the workforce. For example, one question is “how is the employment being utilized?” Or to put it another way, just because people have jobs right now, does that mean they have good jobs? One way to measure employment utilization is to look at the underemployment rate.

Back then, two-thirds of jobs required no more than a high school education. Remarkably, 30 percent of good jobs were held by high school dropouts. Now, 55 percent of good jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree.
