  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 872,000 jobs have been created in 2011.  That's 109,857 jobs created per month in 2011.
  • In "raw" unadjusted numbers, 156,000 jobs have been lost in 2011.  (This includes holiday hiring in December 2010.)  That's 19,500 jobs lost per month.
How many private-sector jobs were created in all of 2011, from December 2010 to August 2011?  Have private-sector jobs been crated or  lost in 2011?

  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 1,162,000 private-sector jobs have been created in 2011.  That's 145,250 new private-sector jobs per month in 2011.
  • In "raw" unadjusted numbers, 1,665,000 private-sector jobs have been gained or created in 2011.  That's 208,125 new private-sector jobs per month.

How many government jobs were created in all of 2011, from December 2010 to August 2011?  Have government jobs been created or lost in  2011?
  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 290,000 government jobs have been  lost in 2011.  That's  36,250 government jobs lost per month in 2011.
  • In "raw" unadjusted numbers, 1,821,000 government jobs have been lost in 2011.  That's 227,625 government jobs lost per month in 2011.
How many more people are working in all of 2011, from December 2010 to August 2011?

  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 421,000 MORE people are working now vs. December of 2010.  That's 52,625 new workers per each month of 2011.
  • In "raw" unadjusted numbers, 1,176,000 MORE people are working now vs. December 2010.  That's 147,000 new workers per each month of 2011.
 Have jobs or workers been lost in 2011? 
  • In 2011, we have had net gains in private sector jobs and in all measures of workers.  
  • We have had fairly substantial losses in the number of government jobs which has caused a drop in the number of non seasonally-adjusted total jobs.  in other words, we have fewer jobs right now than we had in December 2010 when Christmas hiring was very strong.  This is due to layoffs in government sectors.    
  • To reiterate, in terms of private jobs, we have only job gains in 2011.  
How many jobs were created over the past three months from May 2011 to August 2011?
  • In seasonally adjusted numbers, 105,000 jobs have been created in the last three months.  That's 35,000 jobs a month.
