Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 137,000 to 131.9 million in October, seasonally adjusted.
This compares to a September gain of 148,000 jobs (after adjusting for the net effect of strikes and the layoff of the last sizable contingent of temporary census workers). Over the first 8 months of the year, the average monthly gain (after similar adjustments for strikes and changes in the number of temporary census workers) was 195,000.
In October, employment gains occurred in several service-producing industry divisions and in construction and mining.
