Electronic Village: Black Unemployment Drops to 14.1% in August 2012

Electronic Village: Black Unemployment Drops to 14.1% in August 2012

Also mentioned here is that the overall national unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%. If you read Instapundit you'll see that this decrease still isn't good enough since it "Still makes 43 months above 8 percent, though . . . ."

What's of interest here is the Black unemployment rate. In January 2012 it was as low as 13.6% and then it somehow increased to 14.1% by last month. I wonder what accounts for the increase in the intervening months?
