Measuring Underemployment in Rural Areas.
Lichter, Daniel T.
Rural Development Perspectives, v3 n2 p11-14 Feb 1987
Using measures sensitive to rural labor market conditions, determined that nearly a third of the rural labor force is underemployed--by being out of a job, working for low pay, or working too few hours. The current system of calculating unemployment rate seriously underestimates the extent of economic hardship in rural areas. (JHZ)
