Unemployment

Unemployed workers numbered 2.9 million in March, about the same as a year earlier. There were 1.2 million adult men, 1.0 million adult women and 70,000 teenagers actively seeking work. About 90 percent of the men, 75 percent of the women, and 50 percent of the teenagers were seeking full-time work.

Nonwhite unemployment, at 615,000, accounted for about one-fifth of total unemployment. Their jobless rate, at 6.9 percent seasonally adjusted, continued at more than double the white rate.

Rates of unemployment continued comparatively high for nonfarm laborers (7.8 percent) and operatives (4.7 percent) and comparatively low for white-collar workers (1.9 percent) and craftsmen (2.6 percent). The jobless rate for workers covered by unemployment insurance was unchanged over the month at 2.3 percent (seasonally adjusted).
