Jobs & Unemployment
Statistics on Race
There are many metrics to consult when assessing the American jobs landscape. For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics issues a monthly jobs report, tallying the number of jobs added to the economy and in what sector. These jobs might be tied to yearly salaries or monthly wages, though those are just one aspect of income. Americans might also draw income from sources such as Social Security, or portfolio income from investments, dividends, and capital gains.
