How to get the latest news on the state of the economy and the economy in America
The unemployment rate is down to a record low, according to a new analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
But it’s not the first time that the number has fallen.
And the number of Americans who are in work, or who want to be in work but have given up searching for a job, is also down.
In fact, according a separate analysis from CBO, the number is down 11.2% since December 2016.
That’s an increase of nearly 12 million people, or nearly 11% of the population.
The number of people who have given their all to the labor force, including the part-time workers and the workers in part-timers, is down 13.6%.
It’s not only the numbers that are dropping, though.
Other key numbers have been on the rise.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy added just over 6 million jobs in December, an increase from the 6.2 million that were added in November.
The unemployment number fell slightly from 6.9 million to 6.7 million, a slight increase from 6 million to 7.2, and a decline of 0.6% from 6 to 6,000.
The share of Americans age 25 to 54 who are working has fallen by 2.6 percentage points since November, from 45.7% to 43.9%.
The share that is not working has dropped by 0.7 percentage points, from 35.4% to 34.3%.
The labor force participation rate, or the share of the labor market that is in the labor pool, has been steadily rising since November.
It hit an all-time high in December of 62.7%.
The labor force increased by nearly 3 million jobs between January and December of 2016.
The labor participation rate is now higher than it was when President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January.
The economy added 6.6 million jobs during the same period, the latest month for which data are available.
It added more than 3.6 jobs per hour.
The increase was driven by the strong economy, a decline in the unemployment rate and the jobless rate falling, according, as a share of population, to 4.6%, from 5.1% in November, according the Congressional Budget office.
The economy grew by nearly 2.7%, or nearly 7 million jobs, in November of 2016 and is up more than 2.1 million jobs since then.
The jobs created since the beginning of this year are about as large as the jobs added in the first two quarters of the previous year.
The unemployment rate was 9.3% in October, the highest rate since November of 2000, and has dropped to 7% in December.
The overall unemployment rate fell to 5.3%, down from 6% a year ago.
