About These DataUnderemployment is a labor statistic that encompasses the unemployed, people who are no longer looking for work, and involuntary part-time employees. Beginning in 2008, the gap between underemployment and the unemployment rate started to increase until it reached seven percentage points in 2010 and 2011. This increased gap reflects the effects of people remaining in part time jobs or leaving the labor force.
