MONTHLY UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE DATA

1 Included in February, May, August, and November issues.
Employment and Unemployment Developments,
Employment and unemployment in August were bascially unchanged from July. The Nation's unemployment rate was 5.4 percent, little different from the July figure but up from the 5.2-percent plateau that had prevailed during the first half of the year.
Total employment (as measured by the monthly sample survey of households) was 86.2 million in August, practically unchanged for the past 2 months and up only 375,000 since January.
Nonfarm payroll employment (as measured by the monthly survey of business establishments) was also about unchanged in August, at 77.2 million. The payroll job count has been essentially unchanged since May after recovering from last winter's energy-related slowdown.
After adjustment for seasonality, both the level of unemployment (4.9 million) and the rate (5.4 percent) were about unchanged from their July levels. Although neither the July nor August change in unemployment was statistically significant, the change over the 2 months appears to represent a slight increase from earlier in the year. The unemployment rate has now risen by eighttenths of a percentage point from last October's low of 4.6 percent.
Among the major labor force groups, there was an increase in the jobless rate for adult men, from 3.5 to 3.8 percent. This upturn was confined to young men 20-24 years of age, whose unemployment rate rose from 8.1 to 9.3 percent, and to those 55 and over. These older men have experienced rising joblessness for 3 straight months, with their unemployment moving up from 2.3 percent in May to 3.2 percent in August. Offsetting the unemployment rise among adult men was a slight decline among teenagers, whose unemployment rate edged down to 15.3 percent. Unemployment rates for adult women, whites, blacks (Negro and other races), household heads, married men, and workers covered by State unemployment insurance programs all exhibited little or no change in August.
The unemployment rate for Vietnam-era veterans 20-34 years old was also unchanged over the month at a figure (5.0 percent) that was somewhat below that of their nonveteran counterparts (6.3 percent). The most recently discharged veterans (those 20 to 24 years old), however, continued to be more adversely affected by unemployment than young nonveterans. Their jobless rate in August was 11.4 percent, compared with a rate of 9.2 percent for nonveterans of the same ages. In contrast, the jobless rates for veterans 25 to 29 years old and 30 to 34 years old remained below those of their nonveteran counterparts.
Civilian labor force and total employment
The civilian labor force, at 91.1 million was unchanged in August and has, in fact, shown relatively little growth since the beginning of the year. Although it was up by 2.3 million since last August, most of this increase took place in the fall and winter. Adult women accounted for 1.2 million of the over-the-year gain.
Total employment was essentially unchanged in August for the second month in a row, at 86.2 million, seasonally adjusted. Since August 1973, total employment has advanced by 1.7 million. However, two-thirds of this gain took place during the August-October period.
Industry payroll employment
Nonagricultural payroll employment, at 77.2 million in August, remained virtually unchanged since May. In August, as has been the case since May, continued growth in payroll employment in the service-producing sector was offset by declines in the goods-producing sector. Employment changes throughout the summer have been strongly affected by strike activity, first in the construction industry and more recently in manufacturing.
Within the goods-producing industries in August, manufacturing employment fell by 115,000 to 19.8 million, with nearly all of the reductions taking place in the durable goods industries. This employment decline stemmed in large part from labor disputes in electrical
