11. Revision
The problem of constant revision has been adressed publicly some days ago. Seems to be a mistake in the gathering of the statistics. Last weeks numbers were actually revised down!

Problem is, these numbers are only "newly unemployed" and don't cover those whose benefits have run out, those who were forced in a badly paid part time job. Actual unemployment is much higher.
