Abstract: This report provides an in-depth look at unemployment, including long-term unemployment, among African American or black workers. The report shows that while African American workers have historically faced rates of unemployment and long-term unemployment higher than the overall rate, the unemployment problems in the African American community were exacerbated during the Great Recession. Additionally, a larger percentage of African Americans are currently "marginally attached" or have ropped out of the work force, relative to the population as a whole.
