                                THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- FEBRUARY 全民双色球大乐透下载安装
            
            
            Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 273,000 in February, and the unemployment
            rate was little changed at 3.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
            reported today. Notable job gains occurred in health care and social assistance,
            food services and drinking places, government, construction, professional and
            technical services, and financial activities.
            
            This news release presents statistics from two monthly surveys. The household
            survey measures labor force status, including unemployment, by demographic
            characteristics. The establishment survey measures nonfarm employment, hours, and
            earnings by industry. For more information about the concepts and statistical
            methodology used in these two surveys, see the Technical Note.
            
            Household Survey Data
            
            Both the unemployment rate, at 3.5 percent, and the number of unemployed persons,
            at 5.8 million, changed little in February. The unemployment rate has been either
            3.5 percent or 3.6 percent for the past 6 months. (See table A-1.)
            
            Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for Asians declined to 2.5
            percent in February. The rates for adult men (3.3 percent), adult women (3.1 percent),
            teenagers (11.0 percent), Whites (3.1 percent), Blacks (5.8 percent), and Hispanics
            (4.4 percent) showed little or no change over the month. (See tables A-1, A-2, and
            A-3.)
            
            The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more), at 1.1
            million, changed little in February and accounted for 19.2 percent of the unemployed.
            (See table A-12.)
            
            The labor force participation rate remained at 63.4 percent in February. The
            employment-population ratio, at 61.1 percent, changed little over the month but was
            up by 0.4 percentage point over the year. (See table A-1.)
            
            The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons, at 4.3 million,
            changed little in February. These individuals, who would have preferred full-time
            employment, were working part time because their hours had been reduced or they
            were unable to find full-time jobs. (See table A-8.)
            
            In February, 1.4 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force,
            little changed from the previous month. 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 but had not looked for work in the 4 weeks prior to the survey. 
            Discouraged workers, a subset of the marginally attached who believed that no
            jobs were available for them, numbered 405,000 in February, little different
            from the previous month. (See Summary table A.)
            
            Establishment Survey Data
            
            Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 273,000 in February, after an increase of
            the same magnitude in January. In 2019, job growth averaged 178,000 per month. In
            February, notable job gains occurred in health care and social assistance, food
            services and drinking places, government, construction, professional and technical
            services, and financial activities. (See table B-1.)
            
            Employment in health care and social assistance increased by 57,000 in February.
            Health care added 32,000 jobs, with gains in offices of physicians (+10,000), 全民双色球大乐透下载安装
            health care services (+10,000), and hospitals (+8,000). Employment in social assistance
            increased by 25,000, with a majority of the gain in individual and family services
            (+18,000). Over the past 12 months, employment increased by 368,000 in health care and
            by 191,000 in social assistance. 
            
            Food services and drinking places added 53,000 jobs in February. Employment in the
            industry has increased by 252,000 over the past 7 months, following a lull in job growth
            earlier in 2019.
            
            In February, government employment increased by 45,000, led by a gain in state government
            education (+16,000). Federal employment increased by 8,000, reflecting the hiring of
            7,000 temporary workers for the 全民双色球大乐透下载安装 Census. 
            
            Construction added 42,000 jobs in February, following a similar gain in January (+49,000).
            In 2019, job gains averaged 13,000 per month. In February, employment gains occurred
            in specialty trade contractors (+26,000) and residential building (+10,000). 
            
            In February, employment in professional and technical services increased by 32,000. Job
            growth occurred in architectural and engineering services (+10,000) and in scientific
            research and development services (+5,000). Employment continued to trend up in computer
            systems design and related services (+8,000). Over the past 12 months, professional and
            technical services has added 285,000 jobs. 
            
            Employment in financial activities increased by 26,000 in February, with gains in real
            estate (+8,000) and in credit intermediation and related activities (+6,000). Over the
            past 12 months, financial activities has added 160,000 jobs.
            
            Employment in other major industries, including mining, manufacturing, wholesale trade,
            retail trade, transportation and warehousing, and information, changed little over the
            month.
            
            In February, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls
            increased by 9 cents to $28.52. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have 
            increased by 3.0 percent. Average hourly earnings of private-sector production and
            nonsupervisory employees increased by 8 cents to $23.96 in February. (See tables B-3
            and B-8.)
            
            The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 0.1 hour to
            34.4 hours in February. In manufacturing, the workweek increased by 0.2 hour to 40.7
            hours, and overtime edged up by 0.1 hour to 3.2 hours. The average workweek for production
            and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls increased by 0.1 hour to 33.7
            hours. (See tables B-2 and B-7.)
            
            The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for December was revised up by 37,000 from
            +147,000 to +184,000, and the change for January was revised up by 48,000 from +225,000
            to +273,000. With these revisions, employment gains in December and January combined were
            85,000 higher than previously reported. (Monthly revisions result from additional reports
            received from businesses and government agencies since the last published estimates and
            from the recalculation of seasonal factors.) After revisions, job gains have averaged
            243,000 per month over the last 3 months.
