If I'm not working right now and I all of the sudden start to look for a job, would the unemployment rate stay the same/increase/or decrease?


or both

    Increase. The unemployment rate includes only those where are unemployed AND looking for a job; until you start looking, they don't count you as unemployed.

    The unemployment rate for the entire us?

    Unless you are 1% of the workforce, it would stay the same. You are all good.

    The total numbers in the calculation are so large that one person more or less would make no difference.
