  • the number of individuals who have given up looking for a job, thinking employment impossible under current economic conditions,
  • "marginally attached", who can find a job, but are not looking for a job now,
  • underemployed people, who would prefer to have full-time jobs but only have part-time jobs due to conditions of the economy.
