We'll wait until 6 weeks from now when the actual numbers are adjusted DOWN, as they have been for years with the Obama administration.
Expect Obama to declare the economy grew 20%!!!!! last month thanks to Hillary this Saturday morning.

In a galaxy far far away...
Let's see. We need a good employment figure because the election's in a few days. No problemo. Just take whatever number out of the real unemployed and add it to the "not looking for work" category again and, presto, there you go. Then, as usual, the media will dutifully swallow and regurgitate it as positive news. It's not rocket science.

Unemployment under 5%
Obamagas at $2 a gallon
The President at 54% approval

Looks like Republicans can't run on the economy

And the first two had nothing to do with obama.....in fact, his policies actually inhibited both.....frakking gave us 2 dollar gas, and people working 3, part time jobs because of obama's economy is no ones idea of 5% employment....

See...if George W. knew that simply forcing people out of the labor force an onto unemployent so long they gave up looking for work would lower the unemployment rate, we could have had 0% unemployment.....

94.6 Million People Out of Labor Force in October - Breitbart

94,609,000 Americans are now not in the labor force, up slightly from 94,184,000 in September.

The labor force participation rate is 69.2 percent down from 69.3 percent in September.

It's easy to make up a number.
For the deeply stupid among us. ;)

The number is by no means, "made up."


there revisions to the jobs numbers?
By Thomas Nardone, Kenneth Robertson, and Julie Hatch Maxfield

At the beginning of each month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports the change in payroll employment for the previous month.1This estimate of jobs gained or lost over the month is closely watched by policymakers and those who work in financial markets and the media. When the estimate is revised in subsequent months, however, data users sometimes perceive a very different picture of the job market than what was initially reported.2 Data users frequently ask why the number was revised. The short answer is, the revised estimate includes additional information that was not available at the time of the initial release—information that makes the revised estimate more accurate.

Doesn't matter does it?

Voters care about two things when it comes to the economy........Unemployment rate and gas prices

Throwing out any other economic number is just gobbledy gook

Comrade's economic isolationist policy would send us back into the Bush, minus job growth days.

So which is it? Is this fake numbers or bad numbers. Make up your mind Alt Righters!

Why does Breitbart care that we now have 50 million retirees vs 41 million eight years ago?

Deep in the heart of Texas.
I believe the projected number of jobs to be added was 175,0000 so the the number was below expectations. Also labor praticaption rate 62.8 percent.

The numbers are solid. It's just that assholes like you won't accept that fact.
