    While a survey that asks an individual household member to speak on behalf of all the adults in the home can have mistakes of judgement, I would think that you know if people you are living with are actively seeking work, or not, regardless of their long term unemployment status. The fact that someone has been unemployed for a long time is not viewed by the BLS as a de facto admission they have stopped looking. If the adult on the phone interview states that they are actively looking, they are counted as unemployed.
