July Jobs Report: 8.3% Unemployment, 163K Jobs Added

Just a hit-and-run from me.

The jobs news is, well, ambiguous enough for everyone to grab a piece.

The two-part nature of the monthly jobs report often provides political parties an opportunity to cherry-pick their favorite parts — and the release on Friday of the July numbers was no exception.

Democrats moved quickly to promote the surprisingly strong jobs growth for the month, while Republicans seized on a small uptick in the overall unemployment rate as a further indictment of President Obama’s economic policies.

That's the NYTimes. Ed had a similar sentiment:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics gave some mildly good news for the first time in four months. The US economy added 163,000 jobs, slightly outpacing population growth, while the jobless rate ticked up slightly to 8.3%

But I think it's fair that we embrace Obama's own claimed measures for a successful economy. Here he is in 2004 dismissing a jobs report that found 310,000 jobs added and a 5.6% unemployment rate:

Hey, if 310,000 jobs added isn't good enough for the President, than a mere 163,000 isn't good enough for me.

We grow by about 1%/yr. How much of the increase is working age? Probably more than half, so break-even is at least 150k/month. But we need to re-employ those who are out of work, in addition to covering the baseline increase, so my guess is that we need 400k/month for a few years before we see good employment.

76 Weren't we supposed to be at like 6% employment right now as long as we passed the stimulus?
And like 7.5% without?

Seems like to me it'd be an easy thing to say:
"The JEF promised us there would be 6% unemployment in July of 2012 as long as we passed his stimulus package. Of course, today's jobs numbers show that to be false. Despite that bad news, the administration is actually celebrating today's numbers. Yes, you heard me right. They are celebrating because of a mere 163k jobs were added. That's not something to celebrate--that's a failure. In fact, to drop the unemployment rate down to the 6%, as he promised, we'd have to add 4 million jobs*. Do you see anything this administration is doing that will add 4 million jobs? No? Me neither. But I see plenty they are doing to stifle job growth--from blocking pipelines to banning drilling, from endless regulations to favoritism, this administration has a near perfect track record of doing everything but create jobs."

*my rough guess.

Posted by: RoyalOil at August 03, 2012 11:03 AM (imtbm)

77 The employment-population ratio fell from 58.6% to 58.4%, the labor force participation rate fell from 63.8% to 63.7%, and the U-3 rate using the labor force participation of January 2009 would be 11.1%.

Since the recession started, the lowest the employment-population ratio has reached was 58.2% (reached in three non-contiguous months), so there still hasn't been any significant improvement in the labor market from its trough.

The birth-death model, which approximates net job growth from newly added or closed businesses, added 52,000 to the total."

So let me see if I understand this: statisticaladjustments (and from the article I believe larger than normal ones) turneda real-worldLOSS of 195K jobs into a community-based reality-world GAIN of 165K jobs?

This is the friggin "Poppin' Fresh" approach, so often quoted by the HQ. Gotta see the glass as half-full, even if there's nothing in it.

Despite the absurd explanations of the "in fairness" crowd -- everyone from the WSJ to NRO and Tepid Air -- the actual numbers (even when "adjusted" to pimp Bark Obama) are, when interpreted in the best light, pathetic.

My own belief is that if a company replaces someone they fired a year or two ago, it is now considered a "new" job. Black is white, Apples are oranges.

The Dow is climbing because the programmed trading has taken the inputs and a computer generated "buy" program has started.

All the major traders us programmed trading to manage the millions of buys and sells (for eachbrokerage or trading company, like the big insurance companies)every day. Otherwise it would be unmanageable.

We actually live in a world that is not unlike the Matrix movie, in that there is so much unreality baked into everything that appears to happen everyday, it is really hard to grasp just what is real.

Yesterday's loss was attributed to investor disappointment that Europe was not actualoly doing anything about their economic problems despite having promised to do so a few days earlier.

96 BLS also counts part time jobs into that figure, and some of those are only a few hours a week.

Posted by: kbdabear at August 03, 2012 11:08 AM (Y7XKa)

97 Yeah, how does the rate go up if the number of
jobs added outpaces population growth? Obviously, it didn't outpace job
force growth, which population growth may lag (because of children).


Posted by: Arms Merchant at August 03, 2012 11:00 AM (+XVQe)

When the media reports the monthly unemployment rate and net job change figures, they're taking them from two separate reports. The unemployment number comes from a household survey, and the net job change number comes from an establishment (i.e. firm) survey. The household survey includes numbers for employment that will never match up with the firm survey in any given month. It actually shows a decrease of about 200,000 in employment from June to July, compared to the 160,000 increase in employment in the establishment survey. Thus, despite a slight decrease in the labor force participation rate, the official U-3 rate rose from 8.2% to 8.3%.

122 Need to vent rons.

The daughter has a little friend over for a sleepover. She spent the night last night.

Yesterday I took them to the grocery store and let them pick out whatever they wanted for breakfast and lunch. Her little friend picks out these funky Pop-tarts, ok, whatever. Gets up this morning, she doesn't want the fucking pop-tarts. OK fine. Three boxes of cereal open in the cabinet. Doesn't like any of them. While i'm not looking she goes into the garage and opens another fucking box of cereal. Doesn't like that either. Ends up demanding pan cakes. OK, fine, I made her fucking pan Cakes, takes one bite, says I don't like these and tosses them in the garbage and says she's not hungry anymore. OK, Fine. Go play

Lunch rolls around, pulls out the Lunchable Pizzas they selected, makes them, takes one mother fucking bite and says, I don't like these. OK, Fine. Decided she wants apple sauce. Opens the container, takes one bite and says, I don't like this. Throws it in the garbage. OK honey, what do you want. Ice Cream, she says, No I say. OK, Doritos she says, I'm almost all the fuck gone so I say, Fine. Give her a bowl of Doritos. I like cool Ranch she says, Sorry honey, all we have is Nacho Cheese. I don't like those she says, dumps them in the Garbage.

I walk outside, find my well hidden pack of sneaky smokes, go to the side of the house and shotgun it. Come back in with a better attitude. My daughter, is making her a pack of EZ Mac. OK, Fine, I say. Takes a couple bites, says I'm not hungry anymore and you guessed, in the fucking garbage it went.

I just made my first cocktail. When she awakes tomorrow she she drop to her knees and thank Jesus she does not belong to me. That ass would be the color of an eggplant.

Dow climbing? You obviously haven't been watching this week's performance, have you?

The effects of inflation, which is another fudged number since it's actually running right around 9% and will go through the roof in the next few months thanks to the drought and the high price of corn, means that the Dow should be around 10K in real world, inflation-adjusted dollars. At a minimum. I've read some estimates as low as 6K, but IMHO, that's way low.

You still have your freedom of speech--you're free to agree with them or free to shut up.
See also: The Roberts Rule: But of course you are always free to exercise your rights. However, you are not free to refuse the tax, penalty, or imprisonment should the government decide to impose such on said exercise of your rights.

That is why the piss-yellow coward John Roberts' Ruling was the most evil thing to come out of the Supreme Court in 235 years. There is no limit on government power under his formation of what can be taxed. And if it can be taxed, then you can be imprisoned for not paying the tax.

If they're all apologies, you are providing valuable feedback for her folks. I always tell other parents PLEASE let me know if my child cuts out of line while in their care.

I always threaten to "put your head through the wall" to all of my kids. I have never done so nor would I. So I was gobsmacked when my 12 year old daughter announced at the family reunion table that I regularly put their (my kids) heads through the walls. A lot of uneasy laughter ensued.

And, now the unemployment rate drops.

And, they are spinning into a frothy dizzy.

Adam Smith is just the beginning. They are beginning to lose their minds (even more so).

I think this unemployment rate announcement just might turn their attention from tax forms to damage control.

Barky, your daddy must be really proud. Destroying America to get back at the whiteman for 'plundering' Africa. Yep, thats what is motivating Barky. The only time he gets excited is when talking about 'profits' and 'the rich' aka euphemisms for WHITE PEOPLE. "We don't pay our fair shair"... The reason he keeps saying it even though it makes no sense, is because its a euphemism for whitey and western culture. He wants us all dead and impoverished.

He's a very simple man. He is too dumb to realize that America is the economic engine of the world, and without it, we all slide back into the 19th century.. at best. And Africa Barky? After America, its more of a shithole than it is now.. if thats even possible

250 This includes adjusting for the age of people leaving the workforce? I'm an economics know-nothing, sorry.

Fret not. I'm still learning this myself, but I try to pass along what little I know, even though I'm a layman. I was, however, in management at a relatively young age (1 and doing all the books for a restaurant (the #2 store for Pizza Inn in the country at the time), including P and L reports weekly, inventory and stuff like that there. I feel I have a pretty good grasp of the basics. I've also run machine shops too, so there's that. I've been on both sides of the desk.

There are adjustments, to be sure. Many folks are taking retirement earlier than planned. They're also taking Disability in much the same way they take food stamps, because they have to, not because they want to. The Baby Boomers are retiring, so this is a natural reduction in the workforce that we've known was coming for a while now.

Normally, retirees are replaced as kids graduate college, but today this isn't happening because growth is so pathetic.

BTW, hit my place if you haven't already. I try to post on economics as much as I can with my floating Economics Day stuff. Not to be confused with Monty's DOOM posts, 'cause there are usually no kittehs.

339 Just to emphasize Durden's point, he shows us that in order to report a top line job growth number of 163,000 jobs added Obama needed to adjust the raw numbers pretty significantly,

How significantly? They added 429,000 to the raw number.

That's right, according to Durden (who writes about this stuff for a living) the administration arbitrarily changed a very large job loss number into a positive report and called the whole thing a "seasonal adjustment". Now I may not know shit about the BLS time series or adjustment methods, but I do understand raw politically motivated bullshit. This looks like much of a muchness with everything else the administration produces to me.

Posted by: mediumheadboy at August 03, 2012 11:57 AM (aHR5E)

Huh? Methinks you heard something out of context. He probably meant that he was a conservative. Beck doesn't like the parties, but he's not a Reagan basher by any means. He tries to pull the 'I don't carry anyones water' game... like everyone does, and steps in it sometimes. Beck is great though. You'd say the occasional dumb thing too if you had to talk on live radio and tv all day.
btw, he's got callers today giving anon tips about Harry Reids pederasty. Good stuff
