Understanding The U.S Non-Farm Payrolls - EuropeFX

Non-Farm Payrolls:

What is it?

Non-Farm Payrolls is a measure of the number of paid part-time or full-time workers in the US, excluding the farming sector.

Why is it important?

The report is comprehensive, covering over 250 regions across the US and almost every important industry. The data is also very up-to-date: the information contained in the report is only a few days old. Non-Farm Payrolls is one of the most closely watched US indicators and is considered the one of the best gauges of US job creation. Labour is massively important to the US economy, and accordingly the Fed may be influenced by the figures in this report; if the number of jobs being created is high, it can point to inflationary pressures (which the Fed may need to counter with a rate increase), whereas declines in the number may indicate a slowing or contracting economy, which increases the chances of a rate cut. If the figure diverges from expectations, it can lead to large amounts of volatility in dollar exchange rates, as well as in the price of bonds and the level of stock indices.

US Unemployment Rate:

What is it?

This is a report on the percentage of people registered as unemployed in the US, calculated by dividing the number of employed by the total work force. Unemployed individuals are defined as being those able and willing to work who have actively sought employment within the last four weeks. The total work force is calculated as the sum of all those employed and unemployed who are 16 years and over.

Why is it important?

The unemployment rate gives a good picture of the labour environment in the US, and therefore provides insight into production, consumption and earnings. A lower figure suggests increased expenditure from an overall greater amount of wages, which may lead to economic growth as well as inflationary pressures. High unemployment rates, on the other hand, imply economic weakness, lower consumer spending power, etc. Released by: Bureau of Labor and Statistics (Monthly)
