An anomaly of the time was that the government did not systematically collect statistics of joblessness; actually it did not start doing so until 1940. The Bureau of Labor Statistics later estimated that 12,830,000 persons were out of work in 1933, about 1/4 of a civilian labor force of more than 51 million. Roosevelt signed the Federal Emergency Relief Act of May 12, 1933. The president selected Harry L. Hopkins, who headed the New York relief program, to run FERA. A gifted administrator, Hopkins quickly put the program into high gear. He gathered a small staff in Washington and brought the state relief organizations into the FERA system. While the agency tried to provide all the necessities, food came first. City dwellers usually got an allowance for fuel, and rent for one month was provided in case of eviction.This passage is primarily about A) unemployment in the 1930s.

Three of the following factors initiated the greater number of improvements for women: violent revolution, world war, and the rigors of pioneering in an undeveloped land.
