In Central Florida it's probably around near 10% now, considering Florida was at 9.1% even before yesterday's report and C. fla probably has a bit higher unemployment than other parts of the state.

Would be interesting to see how different areas nationally and internationally compare.

I don't know about other countries in the world but here in England we do tend to hide our unemployment. It seems to me one in five males are unemployed but they are supposed to be ill or doing courses or some sort of leave.

Until wages rise and retail prices are controlled there seems little point in working at all.

In Lombardy (Italy), last year the unemployment rate was about 3,7%. Now, according to some unions there could be about 250,000 jobs at risk (the Region has 10,000,000 inhabitants).

Oregon's unemployment is so very different from county to county. Columbia County (northwest of Portland) is over 10%, but Harney County (far Southeast) and Crook County (Central) are 15% and Douglas County (Southwest) is about 14.5%. But, both Crook and Harney County only have populations of about 5000 or so. I think Oregon, as a whole, is about 8.5%.

In the Netherlands it's about 4.5%, datais from CBS based on 4th quarter of 2008. That means about 304.000 unemployed, up 3.000 unemployed when compared with 3rd quarter 2008.

In my country (Kosova) it is close to 50 %, but these are unofficial fact, cause there are many people hired and are not declared by they employee to avoid TAX and other stuff.
BTW if you take a visit to the bars and coffee shops and night club there are plenty of people drinking and having fun.

Just a quick remark, there are considerable differences in determining the rate of unemployment across the world. The rates posted here may not be comparable at all.

In Finland the rate is 7,0%, about the same than a year back. The recession hasn't hit Finland in a full force yet, tough the export sector is suffering.

Yes because they are all different and no because in the end they come back to the ILO defintion of work as being basically one hour a week. Not that the ILO is very keen to give an account that actually lets you know what the criteria are!!

http://laborsta.ilo.org/applv8/data/iloce.pdf

Australia Jan 09 4.6 up from 4.5% in Dec 08. But employed persons rose in that period by 9,800 but seasonally adjusted only 1,200!!
http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/mf/6202.0
Estimates are that if you were to include those "statisticked " out of the figures it would be about 8 or 9% that would be allowing for discouraged and underemployed.

So the percentage unemployed might be 4.6% but the % EMPLOYED is more like 92%.

That must be true.
I forgot to ad that so called 'temporary lay-offs' are typical in Finland. If your employer is in troubles, you don't necessarily loose your job right away. Your job will be 'freezed' for a certain period of time and state pays you unemployment money meanwhile.
If the times change, you can get your old job back.

In Europe we could look at Eurostat's statistics, I suppose.
