Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not arguing with you that a single statistic will describe the market.

And I already said on ET what age/sex/hour worked/self-or-employee/public-private employment:population table I consider minimal to have an honest picture (this table is available to professional but not to the public AFAIK).

I'm just saying that unemployment stat is currently totally useless in OECD countries at least.

Employment can be cheated by saying "self-employed", but there's vastly less incentive (= none) to do so.

And as Dean said, I'm feeling less and less alone here.
