(Note: All of my employment number reports are based on monthly reports and data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. States numbers reports are based on the monthly Regional and State Employment/Unemployment Survey . The BLS reports include month over month and year over year numbers of state job numbers. My analysis is taken from the monthly BLS data copied to an Excel spreadsheet every month. I calculate detailed percentage increases/decreases, 3 month numbers, 2011 to date numbers, and I rank the states according to various metrics.)
