When people capable of working are unable to find work. There are three types of unemployment. Frictional unemployment is the temporary unemployment caused by the time it takes people to search for and move to a new job. Structural unemployment is the mismatch between job vacancies and labour supply caused by structural economic change. Cyclical unemployment is the unemployment caused by an economic downturn, which falls when an economy recovers.
