Each month the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program surveys approximately 143,000 businesses and government agencies, representing approximately 588,000 individual worksites, in order to provide detailed industry data on employment, hours, and earnings of workers on nonfarm payrolls.
Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 215,000 in July,
and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.3 percent. Job
gains occurred in retail trade, health care, professional and
technical services, and financial activities.
