Good analogy. I always woner about these numbers that have to be revised every month too. If one lost a job but found another, newly created one for less money, the job numbers stay the same but one is less well off. School is out for many, and they should be looking for work. On the other hand, lots of people are warming seats in 'higher learning' centers at government expense and don't show up as unemployed, along with those on welfare as their chosen career.
