This video models Lesson 18 from CEE’s High School Economics publication. In a role-play activity, students conduct their own employment survey and use the data to calculate an unemployment rate. After calculating the unemployment rate, students discuss the shortcomings of using only the unemployment rate to gauge the health of the labor market.
