Response to BumRushDaShow (Reply #24)

25. And the survey week for these reports was the week that included the 12th, for the

Household Survey (which produces the unemployed, the unemployment rate, the labor force participation rate, and many other goodies) the reference week was Sept 6-12. For the Establishment Survey that produces the headline nonfarm payroll jobs number, its the pay period for the establishment that includes the 12th.

So any of the layoffs we've been hearing about in the last nearly 3 weeks are missed by this report. Also, a lot of the ones we've been hearing about recently are announcements of future layoffs, not ones that actually have or had occurred.
