*Added for purposes of comparison.
It must be remembered that not all unemployed workers register with the national employment service, and that some of those who do may find jobs on their own and not notify the local office where they are registered. In this latter case, their applications usually remain on file for fifteen days after they were last in touch with the office, at which time they are then cancelled.
