4.  Cyclical Unemployment: Cyclical or Keynesian unemployment is known as demand deficient unemployment, occurs when there is not enough combined demand in the economy. This is caused by a business cycle recession and salary not falling to meet the equilibrium rate.
5.  Classical Unemployment: Classical or real-wage unemployment occurs when real wages for a occupation are put above the market-clearing level. This is frequently credited to government intervention as with the minimum wage or labour unions.
6.  Disguised Unemployment: The term disguised unemployment refers to the mass unemployment and underemployment which overcome in the agricultural sector of an underdeveloped and overpopulated country.
