UN-EMPLOYMENT and INFLATION Calculations…

I am starting to wonder about these questions and want to find the answers:

How is UN-EMPLOYMENT calculated today in America, compared to 20 years ago?

How is INFLATION calculated today in America, compared to 20 years ago?

My first suspicion is that, 20 years ago America calculated UN-EMPLOYMENT quite differently then they do today.

My second suspicion is that, 20 years ago America calculated INFLATION quite differently then they do today.

What I mean is that, for both UN-EMPLOYMENT and INFLATION, I think that the American Government has narrowed the groups in which they take there stats from to make both, UN-EMPLOYMENT and INFLATION, seem less and look better for the American people.

Research begins.
