If you are still looking for work- no matter how long you have been out of work or whether or not you were receiving any unemployment benefits- you ARE counted as in the labor force and unemployed (assuming you don't already have a job and are just looking for another one- then you are in the labor force and employed).
At the depths of the recession, 80% of the labor force with a job was working full time (at least 35 hours a week) and 20% were part time. Today almost 82% are full time and 18% part time- the percent of the labor force working part time has gone down and the full timers have increased. That shows more full time jobs than part time ones.
