All together?   Republicans or Democrats?

Since January 1945, about 72 years ago and almost the beginning of the Post WWII era, there have been 18 Presidential terms, 9 held by Democratic administrations, 9 held by Republican administrations.  

Over all, during those 18 terms, job growth has averaged 7.26% per four-year term based on the number of jobs counted and reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, now found at BLS Table CES0000000001.  

  • Job growth in 9 Republican terms has averaged  4.79% per four-year term.
  • Job growth in 9 Democratic terms has averaged 10.91% per four-year term.
