Unemployment and joblessness are two distinctly different yet interrelated issues. Unemployment is an economic statistic that indicates how bad the economy is. Joblessness, in contrast, is a psychosocial experience with pervasive effects on physical and mental health and quality of life. This article reviews these effects and suggests comprehensive strategies for health promotion among the jobless. Although the focus of this review is on the jobless male, his family and immediate social environment are also important concerns since both are likley to be affected.
