It used to be assumed that you needed to create between 200K to 220K new jobs just to stay ‘even’ — that is no net move in the UE rate.

I recently saw that figure adjusted downward to something like 150K, and I was thinking, “Whoa, you can’t just do that without any explanation!”

Seems that the BLS is not only jiggering the stats but also the underlying expectations.
