The U.S. ranks 23rd in long-term unemployment

According to the OECD, in 2009, the United States had a long-term unemployment rate of 16.3%.  This is enough to make the United States rank twenty-third out of the thirty-four participating OECD countries in that category.  Slovakia ranks first with a long-term unemployment rate of 50.9%.
