9. An interesting graph of LFPR -- it fell during the Bush II years too

https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000

Set the beginning date to 2000 to see the last Clinton year and the Bush II years and beyond to the present

In January 2017, the last month of the Obama admin, it was 62.8%. Now it's 61.4%.

This is from my Data Links posting (#6) :

# Labor Force http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11000000?output_view=net_1mth
The labor force is the sum of employed and unemployed. To count as unemployed, one must have actively sought work in the past 4 weeks (just looking at want ads and job postings doesn't count)

Monthly change in thousands, 1st 9 months:
2020: 50 -60 -1633 -6432 1746 1705 -62 968 -695

Total count in thousands, 1st 9 months:
2020: 164606 164546 162913 156481 158227 159932 159870 160838 160143
September is down 4.403 million from February -- lots of people are discouraged from looking because of poor prospects and/or concerns over coronavirus
January and February data affected by changes in population controls.
