Unemployment predictions explainationThis contest is guessing how much of the unemployment caused by Coronavirus is long term, and how many jobs will be restored when lockdown ends.
We will do this by predicting the unemployment on 31 December 2020 as a percentage of the peak in 2020.
For example, if unemployment peaks at 70 million, and on 31 Dec 2020 it is still 70 million, then the figure is 100%.

Peak unemployment reached in April 2020 at 23,038,000
Latest released figures are for April at 5,941,000
Therefore the current ratio is 25.79%
