Last month (September data) showed a huge employment gain for the month. That had many people questioning how that could be. And expecting the data to come way back down (even show a decline the next month).
But it appears the opposite. October data shows another large gain in employment in the household survey. Both in Full-time and Part-time jobs (around 200k a piece).
An estimated 410,000 increase in employment. Data also showed the labor force grew by 578,000 for the month, well above population growth. A strong indication people are re-entering the workforce. This was backed by an uptick in the participation rate from 63.6% to 63.8%. Data showed an increase in those looking for jobs, also a result of more coming back to the labor force as employment increased for the month, but not enough to keep pace with new job seekers (which there are millions who need to return to the labor force yet).
Also, the previous two months had net job creation revised upward a 84,000 jobs. 50,000 for August, and 34,000 for September. All in all, a pretty decent report in the context of the economy.
