Several major studies have examined the relationship between the two and determined as such:Author: Giancarlo Sopo. The economic crash we are looking at is Biblical in proportions. The US unemployment rate will rise to 15% from 3% due to the current economic shutdown in place across the country.

A study by Goldman Sachs in the paper this morning suggests unemployment will be soar to 15% from about 3% this quarter.
