11. The numbers are seasonally adjusted

Also, the revisions to the payroll job numbers are always given in the BLS report in their summary, but whether the media mentions that in its reporting is a sometimes thing.

From page 3 of http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for March was revised up from +135,000 to +155,000,
and the change for April was revised down from +164,000 to +159,000. With these revisions,
employment gains in March and April combined were 15,000 more than previously reported. (Monthly
revisions result from additional reports received from businesses and government agencies since the last
published estimates and from the recalculation of seasonal factors.) After revisions, job gains have
averaged 179,000 over the last 3 months.
