Official unemployment rate and over-the-year unemployment rate of blacks and Hispanics, 2000–2013

Note: The 2013 unemployment rates are based on the Jan. 2013–Nov. 2013 monthly unemployment rates. The over-the-year unemployment rate is the share of workers who experienced unemployment at some point during the year. The over-the-year unemployment rates in 2013 are the 2013 unemployment rates times the ratio of the 2012 over-the-year unemployment rate to the 2012 unemployment rate.
