I was always under the impression that U-3 numbers were always seasonally adjusted.

The numbers are adjusted for seasonal adds before they are released, are they not?

This might actually confirm my suspicions....if you were to include seasonal employees in that number, I imagine the retail number being a lottttt higher. When I was still in retail we started mass hiring in September/October.

Also, why is that number 20,000 higher then the number that was reported??

Good job news this morning! Lets hope that we can get it down to below 7 by summer 13! Hopefully retail sales go up this holiday season and we get a good Q4.

Several right wingers including Alan West are saying today's jobs numbers are outright faked. It's like they want America to be failing.

Apparently it started with former GE CEO Jack Welch.

I think I agree with you on holiday sales this year....It just feels like it's gonna bea really good season for retailers.


Not that the last few haven't been good anyway...it was almost like people weren't spending at all through the rest of the year and then blew their collective loads come black friday haha

Well hopefully there will be a new iPad in October that will help those numbers go up.

Guess this answers my question on the seasonally adjusted thing. Seems the official number is not seasonally adjusted. Seasonal adjustment brings it back up to 8.1%.....but also had it down at 7.9% last winter haha

More likely an iPad Mini. And the new iPod Touch is actually remotely competent. Also Nintendo has a new game console out mid-November. Retailers are going to have a damn good Black Friday.
