: 2.34 million over age 20 in January had been out of work for* a year or more* and were still looking. a year ago, 3.0 million were.
: Today's data suggest recent trends of good-but-not-great jobs growth is continuing. But they warn us to be wary of a slowdown.
: My usual rule of thumb is 80% weight on payrolls, 20% on household. 0.8*113 + 0.2*616 = 214k Suggests the labor market report wasn't so bad
: But, wow, HERE'S THE SILVER LINING: Household survey shows employment +616k (after adjusting for population controls).
: Ugh. Payrolls +113k. December revised from +74k to +75k. November from +241k to +274k. Unemployment 6.6% Folks, this isn't good news.
