We’re live-charting the completely decent US jobs report for June

Once again, we’re covering the world’s most influential monthly economic update.

In June, the US nonfarm payrolls report showed the US economy generated 223,000 new jobs. That’s somewhat below the expectation for around 230,000. But it shows the world’s largest economy continued to gain momentum after a sluggish first quarter. The unemployment rate fell to 5.3%, from 5.5% in May.

We’ll be rounding up our best charts, as well as the best ones we see on the web as we try to make sense of the data in real time.
