  3. Fun with numbers, now two can play the game, liberals:

    New Jobs Numbers Set More Records – More Jobs Than Unemployed Again!

    “Since 2000 the US has added a net increase of 16.2 million new jobs. Since 2007 the US has added a net increase of 10.5 million new jobs. But in 2017 and 2018 the US has added a net of 3.5 million new jobs.”

  4. No one ever thought the disability rolls would ever come down, or even stabilize. And yet …

    Bigger picture — Not in Labor Force: with a Disability, 16 years and over:
    https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LNU05074597

    Not in Labor Force: with a Disability, 16 to 64 years, Men
    https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LNU05076955

    Not in Labor Force: with a Disability, 16 to 64 years, Women
    https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LNU05076960

    These graphs apparently include people who aren’t receiving any form of assistance. First graph has stabilized in past two years despite aging population. Second and third have come way down in past two years, but the total is still in the neighborhood of 11 million.

    Would be interesting to see longer-term figures for the data you presented.

  5. From what I could tell from the SSA website, they don’t do a spreadsheet like BLS does. You have to create your own by clicking the individual years and then cut and paste to the sheet.
