14. Job gains were zero: 75,000 job gains in May were cancelled out by combined downward revisions

of March and April

Total non-farm payroll jobs:
April in the report that came out May 3: 151,095,000
May in the report that came out today, June 7: 151,095,000


The job count increased by 75,000 in May, but March and April were revised down by a combined total of 75,000. So the net job gain in this report compared to last month's job report is exactly ZERO.

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for March was revised down from +189,000 to
+153,000, and the change for April was revised down from +263,000 to +224,000. With these revisions,
employment gains in March and April combined were 75,000 less 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 151,000 per month over the last 3 months.


I'm busy looking through the entire report for other interesting statistics and anomalies http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

Found one: black unemployment rate: May 2018: 5.9%, May 2019: 6.2%, up 0.3%

(The White House was bragging about how it dropped from 6.7% to 6.2% from April to May )
