Number of Jobs Created by Obama: 198,000 Plus


This post contains numbers as of May 2011.

All current jobs numbers and reports can be found HERE!


We've entered positive jobs territory.
 


In "raw" unadjusted numbers; employers are reporting more jobs in May 2011 than they were reporting in January 2009, when Obama was inaugurated.  Read below.

How many jobs have been created by Obama since the "trough" of the recession in late 2009/early 2010 to now, May 2011?
  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 1,797,000 jobs have been created since the "trough" of the recession in January 2010.
  • In raw unadjusted numbers, 4,444,000 jobs have been created since the "trough" of the recession in January 2010.

How many jobs have been created by Obama since he took office in January 2009?
  • In numbers adjusted for seasonal variations, we are still in negative territory since Obama took office.  In seasonally adjusted numbers, there are 2,512,000 fewer jobs than when Obama was inaugurated in January 2009.
  • But:  In "raw" unadjusted numbers, in terms of the real number of jobs offered by employers to real people, there are now more jobs than when Obama took office in January 2009.  There are now 198,000 more jobs in "raw" unadjusted numbers than when Obama took office in January 2009.
  • (Also, in real unadjusted numbers, there are 144,000 more private-sector jobs than when Obama was inaugurated.)
All of my jobs and employment numbers are taken from the BLS Employment Situation Archived and Current News Releases. .
