George seven point 7% was the unemployment rate in November the lowest level since December 2008.
Nonfarm payrolls increased a 146000.
Well above expectations.
Of 90000 economists had been expecting.
Last job creation last month as you mentioned because of hurricane sandy.
But the Labor Department says that the survey response rates they got from businesses and individuals.
Were fairly normal -- -- end quote a normal ranges quote.
Our analysis suggests that sandy did not substantially impact the numbers for November -- Check that out as very interesting everybody suggested that sandy would have a significant impact but the Labor Department itself is saying no it did not is that correct via.
That's correct and it's because of the way the Labor Department.
Retrieves and asks businesses and people about their employment for example if you work for one hour during -- week.
-- and there's a storm you're still counted as employed for you not to be counted as employed.
You can -- know hours and get no pay.
During the particular survey week -- OK Peter you've had chance to go through the whole report any other headlines standout action.

Fewer jobs created in those two months than had previously.

Fire pit -- on secular much and -- dollar weakness because it is a surprise seven point 7% as the unemployment rate 146000.
New jobs created last month.
I'm joined now -- my colleague Charles Payne Charles this is a surprise.
What does -- tell you about the underlying strength or otherwise of this economy.

I do also wonder about the summer I'm gonna dig in their partial later but seven point 7% with a 146000.

That's what we're gonna look for the labour participation rights and the dropout rates did the labour force actually shrink allowing the unemployment rate to come down to seven point seven.
