Despite Economic Growth, Minimal Improvement for Black Unemployment

Black unemployment has had minimal improvement despite economic growthBerkeley - A new report by the University of California, Berkeley's Center for Labor Research and Education finds that between the first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2012, Black unemployment rates remained at 13.9%. For the nation as a whole, unemployment rates fell from 8.3% to 7.8%. 

"Annual Report: Black Employment and Unemployment in 2012" is based upon data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Current Population Survey.

"2012 did see the continuation of slow but steady growth in payroll employment. Unfortunately, these gains were not distributed evenly across all communities in our nation," said Steven Pitts, labor policy specialist at the Center for Labor Research and Education and author of the report.

Pitts also noted, "The ratio of Black unemployment rate to white unemployment rate actually rose slightly last year from 1.9-to-1 to 2.0-to-1."

The report's main findings include:

  • The official Black unemployment rate stood at 13.9% in the first and fourth quarters of 2012.  When the data was disaggregated by gender, unemployment rates for Black men rose over that time period from 14.7% to 14.9% while rates fell for Black women from 13.2% to 13.0%.
  • When focusing on Black adults (ages 20 and older), Black male ratesmremained constant at 13.7% and Black female rates fell from 12.3% to 12.1%.
  • For white adults, male unemployment rates fell from 6.9% to 6.4% and female unemployment rates fell from 6.7% to 6.3%.
