139. ? One of the links cites several sources of info used, of which a survey is only one.

Another of the links I gave says info from unemployment claims is not the only source used. A survey is used as well beause of certain weaknesses that would occur if info from unemployment claims were the only source used.




And, it isn't as though we know how that their survey subjects were chosen infallibly, either.

The unemployment rate supposedly went from 9% to 8.6%. That is a .4% difference. But, it isn't even that. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/02/jobs-report-de...
