    NPR: BLS Changes Survey To Record Longer Periods Of Unemployment

    With the length of unemployment for many Americans on a steady uptick, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is changing the way it records how long people have been out of work.

    Currently, the BLS records the length of unemployment up to 2 years, but starting on Saturday that will increase to 5 years.

    It will be interesting to see what this does.
