Reader question: Is the unemployment rate in South Africa 30%?

The official unemployment rate was 29% in the second quarter (April to June) of 2019. It means that 29% of the labour force, aged 15 to 64, was without work, available for work and looking for work or trying to start a business. This is also known as the narrow definition of unemployment. The expanded definition of unemployment doesn’t require someone to be looking for a job. They just need to be without work and available for work. According to this definition, the unemployment rate was 38.5%.
