The U.S. unemployment rate dropped last month to 4.4%, the lowest since October 2007, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The U.N. agency said the U.D.C. unemployment data was not comparable to other developed economies, citing “different methodological and analytical standards.”
The data shows the U to be the country with the lowest unemployment rate for women and under the age of 25, but also shows the gender gap is widening in the U, with women and men being less likely to be employed in certain occupations, such as public health, healthcare, and public administration.
The United States has one of the lowest labor participation rates in the world, with only 21.3% of workers between the ages of 16 and 64 employed.
