How does 43 states unemployment rise but the national rate stays at 10%?

A total of 43 states reported rising jobless rates in December, reversing signs of improvement seen the month before, according to a government report released Friday.

Are they just going to keep saying it's at 10%

Update:

True plus they don't count the self-employed out of business too

    Hum ; Could it be that the other 14 states had a rise in jobs ! Owebama did say there were 57 states didn`t he ? Maybe Owebama`s 7 extra states have 100% employment , who knows with the radical liberal bias` media hiding anything that proves Owebama to be the liar he is : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UErR7i2onW0

    Government Math. If you listen to the statistics, you will notice it says first time claims. The means that there are many more people who are either no longer employed and ran out of benefits or under employed and can not collect any benefits and are not counted.

    But this can not be blamed on Obama. This has been the method of counting the unemployed for over 20 years. It is only when unemployment get as high as it is now, that we pay any attention to it.

    I would guess that the average is about 10%. Also people who have been collecting unemployment for a set time are dropped off the count because they have collected all that they can. Unless they believe that we are total idiots, we know that there is a lot more unemployment now, since the christmas season is over and I see stores closing down every day.

    the trick is that the people are dropped from the ratings when their unemployment benefits ends, they then become "non-persons". they are still unemployed but are not tracked because they aren't getting government aid.

    It's just further proof that our federal government lies to the public constantly. They are not to be believed.
