Month to month job growth in 2010
Once a year the Bureau of Labor Statistics revises the payroll data series from the monthly Establishment Survey to reflect added data and – in the case of seasonally adjusted data – adjusted seasonal factors. The table below shows the revised month-by-month job growth and job loss in the United States in 2010 (seasonally adjusted). The second column shows the previously reported monthly change, the second column the revised monthly change and the third column the difference between the the two. All numbers in thousand. The total payroll is about 130 million (closing in on 131 million) so the monthly changes are quite small by comparison.
