It’s an extravaganza!

We’re live-charting the quite strong November jobs report

Jobs Friday is upon us once again.

And the numbers are good—again. The US economy created 211,000 new jobs during the month of November, a smidge better than the 200,000 that were expected. The unemployment rate held steady at 5.0%, as expected. The report reinforced the view that the Federal Reserve will begin the process of raising short-term interest rates, known as “liftoff” at its meeting later this month.

Why not hang out with us here for a while this morning? We’ll be gathering the best facts, figures, and—of course—charts from around the web in order to put what’s arguably the world’s most important economic indicator into a bit of perspective.
