This article presents information on new jobs created in the U.S. The U.S. government revised upward its previous estimates of job growth for August and September 2004 by a total of 113,000, painting a rosier picture of the employment situation over the past three months. With the latest figures, it now looks as if the economy has been adding an average of about 225,000 jobs a month for the past three months substantially above the 150,000 needed to absorb the new entrants into the labor force that a growing population provides.
