difference between 失业率 and 就业率?

Posted by jkdfj March 20, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

Can anyone explain the differnce between
失业率 and 就业率?

I was teaching an English class and the mentioned "unemployment rate" to my Chinese students. When I saw that most of the students didn't understand I said 
就业率,but then everyone said "ohh, 失业率". I then said, "oh, okay, I thought it was 就业率", but the students made it seem like it wasn't proper to use  就业率 . 

Can anyone explain?
