Guys, are these words the key for the Q5?
Yet Keyssar rightly understands that a better way to measure the impact of unemployment is to calculate unemployment frequencies—
measuring the percentage of workers who experience any unemployment in the course of a year. Given this perspective, joblessness looms much larger.


5. Which of the following statements about the unemployment rate during the Great Depression can be inferred from the passage?
(A) It was sometimes higher than 15 percent.
(B) It has been analyzed seriously only since the early 1970’s.
(C) It can be calculated more easily than can unemployment frequency.
(D) It was never as high as the rate during the 1870’s.
(E) It has been shown by Keyssar to be lower than previously thought.


Thanks.
