Unemployment figures for Germany during the Weimar Republic?
August 6, 2014 1:52 PM Subscribe
I need to show unemployment figures for Germany during the Weimar Republic (starting no later than 1923) in a way that consistently compares apples to apples and not apples to oranges -- i.e., total number of unemployed OR total percentage of workforce, but not sometimes one and sometimes the other. (Having both would be ideal.) I would also prefer a specific month for each figure, if possible, rather than just the year (i.e., "Unemployment reaches 5.1 million in September 1932" is more useful than "Unemployment reaches 5.1 million in 1932").

Online resources or books are fine, as long as books are available on Amazon (in the U.S.) or likely to be at a major library. If you do recommend a book, please be certain that the data I’m asking for is there; unfortunately, I’m working on a very tight deadline and I can’t spend the time tracking down something that turns out not to have what I need. English or German is fine. Thanks!
