A few brief excerpts from a note by Goldman Sachs economist Spencer Hill:
We estimate nonfarm payrolls rose by 500k in February (mom sa), above consensus of +400k. Our forecast assumes the return of roughly 200k payroll workers who missed work in January due to Omicron. … We estimate a two-tenths drop in the unemployment rate to 3.8%—compared to consensus of 3.9%.
emphasis addedCR Note: The consensus is for 400 thousand jobs added, and for the unemployment rate to decline to 3.9%.
