3 time higher

The unemployment rate is China is actually 3 times higher than what the Chinese government published. Chinas unemployment survey is calculated very differently from the rest of the world’s calculations.  If I remember correctly only 4 urban cities and only the employees who are registered with the govenment get counted.
