Does everyone know job creation so far in 2012 is about 20% less than same period of 2012.? (First quarter 2013 vs. first quarter 2012). We will not know exactly until BLS releases the March 2013 report tomorrow morning. Economists estimate 193,000 jobs were created in March 2013. Using that number, let's compare jobs created by month for non-farm payrolls. 2012: Jan 311,000; Feb 171,000; Mar 205,000 .... Total 687,000 2013: Jan 119,000; Feb 236,000; Mar 193,000 .... Total 548,000 The decrease in jobs created for the quarter is 179,000 or about 20%.
