Maine sees 609,900 non-farm payroll employees in January


Maine reported the number of employees on non-farm payrolls for the month of January was 609,900, according to a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report which was released in April.

Statistics were compiled from reports from the civilian labor force and unemployment data, both of which heavily relied on household surveys. The data is not seasonally adjusted.

Employment data is gleaned from an establishment survey that measures non-farm employment, hours and earnings by industry. The data is also based on payroll jobs and such factors as where the establishments are located.
