Nonfarm payrolls is an employment report released monthly, usually on the first Friday of every month, and heavily affects the US dollar, the bond market and the stock market. Current Employment Statistics (CES) program from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, surveys about 141,000 businesses and government agencies, representing approximately 486,000 individual work sites, in order to provide detailed industry data on employment, hours, and earnings of workers on nonfarm payrolls.

Latest Updates

Nonfarm payrolls in the US increased by 145 thousand in December 2019, the least since May and following a downwardly revised 256 thousand rise in the previous month and below market expectations of 164 thousand. Notable job gains occurred in retail trade and health care, while mining lost jobs. The decline can be partially due to a later-than-normal Thanksgiving Day in 2019, which could have shifted hiring of seasonal workers, and to a boost in November from the return of workers from a GM strike. In 2019, payroll employment rose by 2.1 million, down from a gain of 2.7 million in 2018, the least since 2011.
