Each Saturday, #we publish our Chart of the Week. It presents interesting trends and data, usually related to the U.S. labor market.
This data comes from a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics news release in February, 2012. “The BLS projections are built on the assumption of a full employment economy in 2020. The 2007-09 recession represented a sharp downturn in the economy–and the economy, especially the labor market, has been slow to recover. As a result, the 2010-20 projections reach a robust 2020 target year largely because the 2010 base year began from a relatively low point. Rapid growth rates for some measures reflect recovery from the recession and, with some important exceptions, growth beyond recovery.”
