    Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows.

    Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent.

    The findings cover people with commercial health insurance — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — so they’re not fully representative. But most people in the U.S. are covered by a commercial health plan.

    Any idea why depression is on the rise?
    The pressures of modern day society. Society 'progresses' with each generation, obviously not in the right direction.

    A minor decline (which stated in 2000, not 2001, by the by) than stabilized to statistically similar levels as previous is different than the nose dive that occurred from 2009 onward.
    You mean during the Great Recession ('cause we always expect worker participation to increase during an economic downturn).

    If you tell that to a depressed person's face, you might get the shit beat out of you.

    People are probably really no more depressed then previous generations. We just talk about it more, instead of telling people to "fuck off" or some such similar avoidance of the problem.

    From your link

    Labor Force Participation Rate in the United States decreased to 62.80 percent in April from 62.90 percent in March of 2018. Labor Force Participation Rate in the United States averaged 62.99 percent from 1950 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 67.30 percent in January of 2000 and a record low of 58.10 percent in December of 1954.
    Looks like it was several decades before the "average" was hit again after 1980.

    Kallie, you're not just an economics illiterate, you're also a nimrod who evidently can't even read the graphs that have been provided to you in this thread. Here is the data set direct from the Bureau of Labor Statistics which actually COLLECTS this data:

    https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000

    I recommend setting the graph back to, say, the year 1990 or so. But look at the TABLE below the graph.

    (1) The Labor Force Participation Rate reached its ALL-TIME PEAK of 67.3% in March and April of 2000, during the height of the dot.com boom/bubble.

    (2) A year later, in April 2001, when George W. Bush had taken over, the LFPR was at 66.9%. It was never again above 67%.

    (3) By April 2004, we got a reading of 65.9% on the LFPR, the first time it had fallen below 66% in a LONG time.

    (4) In October 2008, just as we were plunging into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the LFPR was at 66.0%. This was the LAST time the LFPR was at 66.0% or better.

    (5) In January 2009, when George W. Bush handed the reins over to Barack Obama, the LFPR had fallen to 65.7% and was, of course, falling rapidly. It had fallen from the 67% level that it was at when George W. Bush had taken over.

    Those are all FACTS, Kallie. I am sorry that you have so much trouble assimilating FACTS.
    Thanks from labrea

    "...reaching an all time high of 67.30 percent in January of 2000 and a record low of 58.10 percent in December of 1954."

    So the economy must have been in the toilet back in 1954, by the LFPR standard. Except it wasn't. Huh?

    2010, Baby boomers start turning 65, and look what happens to the LFPR. With all the ones that started retiring early, the trend had already begun, but we'll let you explain why Obama caused this, or why it's bad.

    Ms. labrea,

    LOL, the "great recession" ended in June 2009. Obama's decline in the labor participation rate lasted until late 2015 before it stabilized.
