Household Survey Data
The unemployment rate held at 6.3 percent in May, following a decline of 0.4 percentage point in
April. The number of unemployed persons was unchanged in May at 9.8 million. Over the year, the
unemployment rate and the number of unemployed persons declined by 1.2 percentage points and 1.9
million, respectively. (See table A-1.)
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (5.9 percent), adult women
(5.7 percent), teenagers (19.2 percent), whites (5.4 percent), blacks (11.5 percent), and Hispanics (7.7

percent) showed little or no change in May. The jobless rate for Asians was 5.3 percent (not seasonally
adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
Among the unemployed, the number of job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs
declined by 218,000 in May. The number of unemployed reentrants increased by 237,000 over the
month, partially offsetting a large decrease in April. (Reentrants are persons who previously worked but
were not in the labor force prior to beginning their current job search.) (See table A-11.)
The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was essentially unchanged
at 3.4 million in May. These individuals accounted for 34.6 percent of the unemployed. Over the past 12
months, the number of long-term unemployed has declined by 979,000. (See table A-12.)
The civilian labor force participation rate was unchanged in May, at 62.8 percent. The participation
rate has shown no clear trend since this past October but is down by 0.6 percentage point over the year.
The employment-population ratio, at 58.9 percent, was also unchanged in May and has changed little
over the year. (See table A-1.)
The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as
involuntary part-time workers), at 7.3 million, changed little in May. These individuals were working
part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. (See
table A-8.)
In May, 2.1 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, essentially unchanged from a
year earlier. (The data are not seasonally adjusted.) These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted
and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not
counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey.
(See table A-16.)
Among the marginally attached, there were 697,000 discouraged workers in May, little different from
a year earlier. (The data are not seasonally adjusted.) Discouraged workers are persons not currently
looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them. The remaining 1.4 million persons
marginally attached to the labor force in May had not searched for work for reasons such as school
attendance or family responsibilities. (See table A-16.)
Establishment Survey Data
Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 217,000 in May, with gains in professional and
business services, health care and social assistance, food services and drinking places, and transportation
and warehousing. Over the prior 12 months, nonfarm payroll employment growth had averaged 197,000
per month. (See table B-1.)
Professional and business services added 55,000 jobs in May, the same as its average monthly job gain
over the prior 12 months. In May, the industry added 7,000 jobs each in computer systems design and
related services and in management and technical consulting. Employment in temporary help services
continued to trend up (+14,000) and has grown by 224,000 over the past year.
In May, health care and social assistance added 55,000 jobs. The health care industry added 34,000
jobs over the month, twice its average monthly gain for the prior 12 months. Within health care,
employment rose in May by 23,000 in ambulatory health care services (which includes offices of
-2-

physicians, outpatient care centers, and home health care services) and by 7,000 in hospitals.
Employment rose by 21,000 in social assistance, compared with an average gain of 7,000 per month
over the prior 12 months.
Within leisure and hospitality, employment in food services and drinking places continued to grow,
increasing by 32,000 in May and by 311,000 over the past year.
Transportation and warehousing employment rose by 16,000 in May. Over the prior 12 months, the
industry had added an average of 9,000 jobs per month. In May, employment growth occurred in
support activities for transportation (+6,000) and couriers and messengers (+4,000).
Manufacturing employment changed little over the month but has added 105,000 jobs over the past
year. Within the industry, durable goods added 17,000 jobs in May and has accounted for the net job
gain in manufacturing over the past 12 months.
Employment in other major industries, including mining and logging, construction, wholesale trade,
retail trade, information, financial activities, and government, showed little change over the month.
The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls was unchanged at 34.5 hours in
May. The manufacturing workweek increased by 0.2 hour in May to 41.1 hours, and factory overtime
was unchanged at 3.5 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on
private nonfarm payrolls was unchanged at 33.7 hours. (See tables B-2 and B-7.)
In May, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 5 cents to
$24.38. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have risen by 2.1 percent. In May, average
hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 3 cents to
$20.54. (See tables B-3 and B-8.)
After revision, the change in total nonfarm employment for March remained +203,000, and the change
for April was revised from +288,000 to +282,000. With these revisions, employment gains in March and
April were 6,000 lower than previously reported.

For example. then all of the values within the 90-percent confidence interval would be greater than zero.000. that the estimate is considered final. obscuring the underlying employment trends in the industry. this differs from the unemployment estimate that would be obtained by directly adjusting the total or by combining the duration. or more detailed age categories. These adjustments make nonseasonal developments. When a sample. Because seasonal employment changes at the end and beginning of the school year can be estimated. there is a chance that the sample estimates may differ from the true population values they represent. however. Reliability of the estimates Statistics based on the household and establishment surveys are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. At an unemployment rate of around 6. such as declines in employment or increases in the participation of women in the labor force. the statistics can be adjusted to make underlying employment patterns more discernable. we could not say with confidence that nonfarm employment had. Suppose the estimate of nonfarm employment increases by 50. The component of this difference that occurs because samples differ by chance is known as sampling error. There is about a 90-percent chance. 5-year revisions to historical data are made once a year. In this case. in fact. and the opening and closing of schools. estimates for the most recent 2 months are based on incomplete returns. employment in most major sectors. The effect of such seasonal variation can be very large. including the failure to sample a segment of the population. in the establishment survey.

For example. major holidays. the reported nonfarm employment rise was 250. For example. The household and establishment surveys are also affected by nonsampling error. The seasonally adjusted figures provide a more useful tool with which to analyze changes in month-tomonth economic activity. new seasonal factors are used each month to adjust the three most recent monthly estimates. easier to spot.0. or level of confidence. estimates involving many individuals or establishments have lower standard errors (relative to the size of the estimate) than estimates which are based on a small number of observations.000 from one month to the next. it is likely (at least a 90percent chance) that nonfarm employment had. increased that month. Because these seasonal events follow a more or less regular pattern each year. and for the monthly change in the unemployment rate it is about +/.

This procedure accounts for most of the net birth/death employment. The new benchmarks also incorporate changes in the classification of industries. but imputing to them the same employment trend as the other firms in the sample. and serves as a rough proxy for total survey error.
