Not to mention that they include people who stopped looking for a job after 9 months. This could include people who simply gave up because they could not find work.
I agree that this stat could include people who just gave up, but I think it most likely is comprised of people who got married, inherited some dough, or something along those lines. I'd be more inclined to say that the 4% who didn't report would be the unemployed/can't find a job category. I don't think most people can graduate from law school and then just give up when they don't find a job.
Let's do some math.
276 are reporting their employment or unemployment.
Private Practice: 164 (employed)
Business: 37 (employed, this is the category I'm paying attention to because they AREN'T practicing law)
Government: 25 (employed)
PI: 16 (employed)
Clerk: 8 (employed)
Academic: 25 (in school or employed; take this whatever way you wish)
Unknown: 1 ( this is the "not seeking full time employment" person)
I believe this = 276
I know employment stats have their skews, but am I wrong on this one?
