Are we supposed top discuss this or something? It's a question but you've forced the answer upon anyone that opens it so in doing so, the answer to the question from everyone will now ultimately be YES

But since the chart is from 2010 and the reference it gives is updated to 2013, the answer after reading the OP would be NO :)

@Drake

Statistics, statistics.

Is the percentage of the whole population, of the working population, do "stay at home moms" and people who have given up on finding a job count etc etc....

I wonder how America's 2.3 million people in prisons count in that,  if their counted as unemployed, or if prison labor is counted as having a job?

It says "Employment rate is calculated using employment to population ratio." So it includes, children, students, prisoners, homemakers, retired people, disabled people and so on.

Not sure if those figures have any meaning other than for trivia quizzes, they certainly don't say much about unemployment rates.
