Null Hypothesis:
The total percent of the labor force that is unemployed in the countries that revolted is equal to the the percent of the total labor force that is unemployed in America 1980 to 2010. Alternative Hypothesis:
The total percent of the labor force that is unemployed in the countries that revolted not is equal to the the percent of the total labor force that is unemployed in America 1980 to 2010.

Method of Data Analysis: 2-Sample T-Test
Conditions
It can be assumed that the measure of unemployment in the two groups (revolted and America) are independent of each other and in each group, the individual country's inflation is independent. Each country's measure of unemployment was compared individually to every other country.
The distribution for average unemployment rates from 1980-2010 is approximatley normal.
degrees of freedom:n-1
number of years assesed=30
df=29

Significance level: t=.05
Significance level in context: I would fail to reject the null hypothesis that the measure of inflation for countries that revolted is equal to the measure of inflation for America if the probability for this situation occuring is %5 or greater.

Average Unemployment rate in America from 1980-2010: 6.303% Average Unemployment rate in from 1980-2010 in Middle Eastern Countries that experienced mass protests: 12.11%

Conclusion:
The probability that the unemployment rate in America and in the Middle Eastern countries that have experienced mass protests is very close to zero, therefore I would reject the null hypothesis that the two samples are equal.
