  5. 5. Frictional unemploymentFrictional unemployment occurs when aworker moves from one job to another. It is aresult of imperfect information in the labormarket, because if job seekers knew thatthey would be employed for a particular jobvacancy, almost no time would be lost ingetting a new job, eliminating this form ofunemployment.
  6. 6. Structural unemployment Structural unemployment arises when the qualification of a person is not enough to meet his job responsibilities. Conversely, structural unemployment arises when the salary offered to a person falls short of the minimum wage that can be paid for the concerned job.
  7. 7. Cyclical unemploymentCyclical or demand deficient unemploymentoccurs when the economy is in need of lowworkforce. The demand for labor increases withthe economy in the growth phase.

Failure to pay installments or to pay rent may lead to homelessness through eviction. Unemployment increases chances of malnutrition, illness, mental stress, and loss of self- esteem, leading to depression.
  11. 11. Society: An economy with high unemployment is not using all of the resources, i.e. labor, available to it. Since it is operating below its production capability, it could have higher output if more people are usefully employed. However, there is a difference between economic efficiency and unemployment: if the frictionally unemployed accepted the first job they were offered, they would be likely to be operating at below their skill level, reducing the economys efficiency.
  12. 12. Measurement Economists typically focus on the unemployment rate. The unemployment rate is expressed as a percentage, and is calculated as follows: Unemployment rate=unemployed worker/total labor force*1oo As defined by the International labor organization, "unemployed workers" are those who are currently not working but are willing and are able to work for pay, currently available to work, and actively searching for work
