    international comparaisons are deceptive ......

    For instance, unemployment definition is not always standard, others factors ( rates of interned people, rates of disabled people) interfer significantly.

    The USA have a high rate of jailed people and that means less unemployed persons.

    England of Blair has a high rate of disabled people and that means less unemployed people.

    Women work is also a factor. In Germany, there are less active women than for instance in France then less active people.

    One more significative indicator is the rate of active population on the global population of 16-65 years ....

    Strange that it seems more difficult to find ....

        A good place to start are the 'workforce participation' figures.
