Investopedia explains 'Concealed Unemployment'


Unemployment statistics do not always accurately reflect the number of unemployed people in the workforce. Unemployment statistics typically are derived only from those people who are both out of work and actively seeking a job. Concealed unemployment figures are typically not used in statistical calculations. People who are out of work do not always file for unemployment benefits, and it is these potential workers that create concealed unemployment.
