Although I'm still looking at GDP and employment￼ for 2012, I think the unemployment rate will be mostly unchanged in 2012.
A couple of predictions.
• The participation rate will rise slightly in 2012 and probably end the year in the 64.0% to 64.5% range.
• The unemployment￼ rate will still be in the 8% to 9% range in December 2012.
