How Long Does Unemployment Last?
Wegmann, Robert
Career Development Quarterly, v40 n1 p71-81 Sep 1991
Typical period of unemployment lasts two or three months. Length of unemployment period varies depending on age, sex, race, and education level. Older, college-educated workers often face job search period of four to six months. One in three unemployed persons stops looking for work and withdraws from the labor force (at least temporarily) before a job is obtained. (Author/NB)
