Rasmussen Employment Index -- Rasmussen Employment Index Jumps Five Points

The Rasmussen Employment Index which measures worker confidence rebounded in November after falling to a low for the year in October.

At 85.7, worker confidence is up five points from October, the month of the partial government shutdown, but is still down nearly nine points from this year’s high of 94.4 in May.  Last month marks the highest level of confidence since August and is up seven points from 79.0 this time last year.

Generally speaking, an increase in the Rasmussen Employment Index suggests the upcoming government report on job creation will be stronger than the prior month’s report.
