February Job Numbers

Lately all the right-wing radio shows have been touting the “Household Survey” over they “Payroll Survey” because the Household shows that unemployment is not as bad as the Payroll shows. (Economists say the latter, Payroll, is the more reliable number.) But today’s job numbers for February are terrible if you use the Household numbers, which actually fell. Don’t expect to be hearing about the Household Survey on right-wing radio anymore.

The numbers are here: Employment Situation Summary.
