March 2008 Payroll Data

The BLS and many state workforce agencies today released both establishment and household survey data for March.

Of particular interest on the establishment/payroll side is that there are now eleven states who saw a decline in Y/Y NSA employment. The eleven are... Rhode Island, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and California. I have followed the number of states showing employment declines now for several months and this is the largest number of states seen yet (also the largest total population represented so far).
