  •  The unemployment rate WILL be revised (eventually) (1+ / 0-)

    but the unemployment numbers are from a different survey (the household survey.) The payroll numbers are from the establishment survey. So basically, this partially explains why there's not as tight of a correlation between jobs created and the unemployment rate. Remember, too, that these are existing jobs, and that a person can (in theory) take up more than one of those jobs.
