Abstract:

The number of jobs grew by 96,000 in September.  This is one-third the job growth of 300,000 per month that would have been achieved if job growth had occurred at the rate that is average for a recovery, according to the definition of average used by the chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.  This continues a pattern predominant during the past year of job growth; with few exceptions, this growth has lagged behind — and usually well behind — the pace of job growth typically associated with a recovery period.
