Jobs report for January 2016


The 2017 job growth cycle has started out really bad with the December and January layoffs being a lot worse than in many years.

These charts show the number of jobs in existence from a year ago by their month.  The payroll, top chart is more consistent.  The bottom survey is very volatile but I think it leads when there are big changes in job growth.
