US Employment Situation Release Dates

 

Bureau of Labor Statistic Logo

The BLS always announces release dates for all of the regular economic data series being produced a year ahead of time.

The Employment Situation is no exception.  The data release usually falls on the first Friday of the month at 8:30 AM.  The Bureau is fairly rigorous about the release date, even providing the data during weather shutdowns.

The release dates for 2018 are below.
