Georgetown: Chemist unemployment rate at 5.1%


In the great battle to determine the True Unemployment Rate for Chemists, I note that the Wall Street Journal has weighed in with a data set from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce's report on college majors. (Page 162)

It finds that the unemployment rate for chemists is (drumroll) 5.1%. It's undetermined how they found this number, but I note that it's not very much higher than ACS' 3.8% or BLS' 3.1% (both for 2010.)
