unemployment rate

Archives

Unemployment rate is a very important fundamental indicator of the US economy’s health. The rate is released in the same government report as the influential nonfarm payrolls numbers. However, the NFP part of the report is considered to be more impactful than the unemployment rate itself. Nevertheless, a surprise decline of unemployment can lead to the USD strength, while an unexpected growth of unemployment can make the currency decline. The indicator is released monthly by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, usually on the first Friday after the month ends. The posts below contain the unemployment rate values released since 2007.
