This Jobs Report Not Actual Size

Mr Ransom Samuel Butler once said: "Figures never lie, but liars often figure" Whether it right or wrong the unemployment numbers have been reported this way for years. You said: "That’s right; 21,000 fewer jobs in January than in December" I have no way of knowing how you came up with this when the total job numbers created in January was 157000 and 155000 in December? The margin of error is based on employer reporting if they provide garbage reporting then the report is garbage. The +/- 100000 number is used to set expectations.

The American economic juggernaut keeps churning out good news folks. According to government economists 236,000 jobs were created in February, plus or minus a margin of error of 100,000 jobs.

Anyone wanna take the under here?

In other news, the BLS revised January jobs data down 38,000 jobs so that the net number of jobs created in the first month of the year was a negative 21,000 jobs.

That’s right; 21,000 fewer jobs in January than in December. 

No wonder consumer confidence is moving up. The government is lying every month about something, anything, and...
