29. So we have 201,000 - 50,000 equals 151,000 more jobs than the previous jobs report

+201,000 in August but a combined 50,000 downward revision in June and July. So not a great jobs report.

Interesting factoids from the Household Survey (that gives us the unemployment rate and labor force participation rate):

Over the past month (unless otherwise stated):
## Labor force: -469,000
## Employed: -423,000
## Unemployed: -46,000
## NILF (Not in Labor Force): +692,000 to 96,290,000 and +1,531,000 over past 12 months,

(During the campaign, Benedict Donald told us that there were "94 million jobless Americans". Well now, using the same metric, there are "96 million jobless Americans" This count includes the voluntarily retired, full time students age 16 and over, homemakers, elderly including centenarians, but he didn't say that during the campaign. )

More on above, including the "42% unemployment rate" -- https://www.democraticunderground.com/100210153676

## NILF,WJ (Not in Labor Force, says wants a job): +226,000 to 5,389,000 (down 420,000 past 12 months)

## Cautionary Note: the Household Survey statistics are extremely very volatile from month to month.
