Why don't they get the job data from the companies doing the hiring instead of "households".I believe the Census Bureau works with the Department of Labor to conduct the unemployment surveys of households. The national census or full population count is conducted every 10 years.
I thought the unemployment numbers came from those claiming "unemployment" at the unemployment office not household surveys.

How are you gonna get unemployment data from companies? How do companies know who's looking for work? For unemployment numbers, they use household surveys. For job growth numbers, they use companies.

Of course a "tabloid" is a publication that pays for source information. The Post is no more of a "tabloid" than the Times, but since the Times clears stories with the party prior to publication, you seek to smear the Post.
I also notice that you offer nothing to support the contention that the story is accurate - instead you offer just a backhand smear.
I understand, slander, libel, and demagoguery are the mainstay of the shameful left.
I said job data...you know as in "hiring".How are you gonna get unemployment data from companies? How do companies know who's looking for work? For unemployment numbers, they use household surveys. For job growth numbers, they use companies.
I always thought the unemployment numbers come from "unemployment claims". Polling 60,000 households to represent the entire unemployment rate would seem easy to skew.
Skewing the job numbers is a pretty serious allegation so I"m going to wait until a credible news source weighs in. But thats just me...ya'll go ahead and believe whatever you want because you will anyway.
Gotta love the always in denial mode of the -ists. Lies are not lies with them, failure is never failure with them as long as it supports Obama somehow.
