I was going through a few to supply the background section of this research brief with some basic naitonal numbers. Below are three unlabeled labor market indicators from the BLS.
1. Can you figure out which indicator each is?
2. Which do you think is the best for talking about the state of the labor market, and why?
3. What is the problem with the two you didn't choose?
I know my views on this, and I'm curious about yours. I'll be working on the computer all day so if identifying them is an obstacle I can do that, but identification from inferences about how the trends move with respect to each other can contribute to the answers in important ways.
