The nationwide unemployment rate declined slightly last month from 5.1
to 5.0 per cent. That's up from the 4.6-4.9% range during 2006-2007, but
still well below the average for the 1990s, which I believe was close to
6%.

Back then, 5.5-6% was considered "full employment." There's always some
amount of what economists call "frictional unemployment" -- in a dynamic
economy, jobs and jobseekers are continually in flux, and transitions
from one to another aren't instantaneous.

Just FYI. Can you tell I have an Econ degree? :-)
