The Federal Reserve Labor Market Conditions Index is derived from 19 labor market indicators, designed to gauge the strength of the jobs market. The index is heavily weighted to the unemployment rate and private payrolls. It also includes the labor-force participation rate as well as data on wages, hiring and dismissals. The index is released on the first business day after the Labor Department issues its jobs report. A reading above 0.0 indicates improving labor market activity, below indicates deteriorating activity.

Obama is absolutely pathetic. The recession ended six years ago and we are still recovering. The unemployment rate ticked up in the June 5th report because some people re-entered the work force. But it had been going down only because people were constantly leaving the work force.. . Labor force participation was 65.7% when the recession ended in June 2009. It has constantly been going down since then under the Obama economy and is now at 62.9%. If labor force participation was still 65.7%, the unemployment rate would be more than 9%..
