Civilian Unemployment Rates

Civilian unemployment rates have been at an all time high since the pandemic striked. The civilian labor force is a term used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to refer to Americans whom it considers either employed or unemployed, military personnel, federal government employees, retirees, handicapped or discouraged workers, and agricultural workers are not part of the civilian labor force. It seems that the numbers have been going up 1992 until 2019, but then suddenly drops in 2020, and I can assume that this is due to the corona virus or COVID-19, the numbers spiked from almost one hundred and sixty thousand employees to less than one hundred and thirty five thousand employees, This did not last long though since the numbers are slowly but steadily rising back up which is very promising. I would suspect for the numbers to go back to normal and start increasing as it was before in about a year.
