Initial Reaction

Today’s establishment survey shows jobs declined by 33,000.

The way the BLS accumulates household survey stats leads to some seemingly-wild mathematical discrepancies.

Supposedly, employment rose by 906,000 (Table A).

Full-time employment (Table A-9) declined by 65,000 but part-time employment rose by only 81,000.

Of the 81,000 increase in part-time workers, those who are employed part-time for economic reasons (Once again Table A) declined by 133,000 and the number of voluntary part-time workers declined by 436,000.

None of this ever adds up, but the BLS says it’s not supposed to. This month was particularly wild.

Let’s dive into the details in the BLS Employment Situation Summary, unofficially called the Jobs Report.
