You said more people. That means the actual number of people working.<quoted text>
Cute, you gave a bad link -"The database is currently unavailable.
Your request was invalid for this Data Access Service. Please attempt other data requests. Thank you for using LABSTAT."
Here is a functioning link
Note the top chart which shows Civilian labor force participation rate. Anyone can see it is downhill.
Now look at the second table
Work force participation was 65.7 January 2009
Work force participation is 63.3 as of March 2013
Not a participation rate.
I apologize for my link. I assumed you had enough intelligence to follow the instructions & get those numbers. My mistake.
