Current Employment Statistics provide a monthly count of nonfarm establishment payroll jobs including jobs held by employees on paid sick leave, paid holiday or paid vacation. The count covers jobs filled by employees who are paid for any part of the week that includes the 12th day of the month. It is a count of jobs by place of work, not people. Individuals can be counted multiple times if they hold more than one job. Individuals not included: the self-employed, unpaid volunteer or family workers, domestic workers in households, military personnel, people who are laid off, on leave without pay or on strike for the entire reference period.
