The US economy added 315,000 jobs in August, more than the 298,000 that economists had expected, but a decrease compared to the downwardly revised 526,000 jobs that were created in July​​.

What are the non-farm payrolls?

The US non-farm payrolls is an official statistic released by the US Department of Labor, usually on the first Friday of every month. The non-farm payrolls measure the number of people currently in employment in the US and are released along with the US unemployment rate.

Specifically, the non-farm payrolls measure the number of people in employment in all businesses across the country, excluding agricultural, local government, private household and not-for-profit sectors.
