Today in a Bloomberg report on the UE rate at the very end of the article, the government’s ‘new methodologies’ and other attempts at screwing with the numbers were disclosed:
With todays jobs report, the government issued its annual benchmark update, aligning the data with corporate tax records covering the period from April 2010 to March 2011. The Labor Department added 165,000 to the job count over the period.
The report also included methodology changes to the household survey, incorporating new population data from the decennial census, according to the Labor Department.
It also included changes to the figures used to adjust the data for seasonal swings affecting numbers back to January 2007.
Thanks. I’ll check out Bloomberg.
The frightening part of this is the Obama voters get their information from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and the Comedy Channel (Daily Show and Colbert Report). They will drink the kool-aid and vote for rats. If a few of the limp-wrist independents and RINOs go with them we have 4 more years of destruction and the end of the Republic.
