Labor Department: ‘500,000 Jobs Were Created In The U.S In November’

December 4, 2011 4:30 am

We spotted this today:

“With a few tweaks (such as subtracting farm workers and adding jobs from people who hold more than one position), the Labor Department also produces a household survey jobs figure that aims to get at the same sort of positions that are covered in the establishment survey. That tally, called Adjusted Household Survey Employment, showed the economy added 498,000 jobs in November. Over the past year, the adjusted household employment figure shows the economy adding 2.5 million jobs, compared with the official 1.6 million figure that comes from the establishment survey.”
