March Employment Statistics Released by BLS

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics released its latest employment report this morning. Non-farm payroll employment lost 80,000 jobs and the unemployment rate rose from 4.8 to 5.1 per cent. Not good!

You can get the latest report in HTML or PDF format from the BLS web site.

If you're interested in how these statistics are collected and calculated, you can see a summary on my GSB420 blog post or in the BLS technical note.
