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

The US economy added 235K jobs in August of 2021, the lowest in 7 months and well below forecasts of 750K as a surge in COVID-19 infections may have discouraged companies from hiring and workers from actively looking for a job. Most jobs were created in professional and business services (74K), transportation and warehousing (53K), private education (40K), manufacturing, and other services (37K). Employment in retail trade declined over the month (-29K) mostly because of food and beverage stores (-23K) and building material and garden supply stores (-13K). Employment in leisure and hospitality was unchanged. Nonfarm employment has risen by 17 million since April 2020 but is down by 5.3 million, or 3.5%, from its pre-pandemic level in February 2020.
