Total Nonfarm Payrolls: All Employees

Monthly, Seasonally Adjusted. Source: U.S. Department of Labor: Bureau of Labor Statistics. All Employees: Total Nonfarm, commonly known as Total Nonfarm Payroll, is a measure of the number of U.S. workers in the economy that excludes proprietors, private household employees, unpaid volunteers, farm employees, and the unincorporated self-employed. (1) This measure accounts for approximately 80 percent of the workers who contribute to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This measure provides useful insights into the current economic situation because it can represent the number of jobs added or lost in an economy. Increases in employment might indicate that businesses are hiring which might also suggest that businesses are growing. Additionally, those who are newly employed have increased their personal incomes, which means (all else constant) their disposable incomes have also increased, thus fostering further economic expansion.

would you consider including quarterly gross output data in the economic indicators section. it is published by the bureau of economic analysis. some think it may be somewhat of a leading indicator.

For some of these data series it would be very helpful to have the option of choosing a logarithmic scale for the Y-Axis.
