Non-Farm Payroll
Summary & Interactive Data

The Dallas Federal Reserve Bank’s Non-Farm Payroll is the sum of goods producing and services providing employment which is seasonally adjusted and benchmarked to the most recent quarter. The data reflects the number of employees in the payroll categories of goods producing and services providing.

Just like the other sections of this dashboard, static and interactive features are available on this page. You will find navigation on the left hand side support bar to allow easy movement between the pages of the economy dashboard as well as to other sections of the dashboard.

These data sets are more complicated so we have provided a list of key terms, accessible on every page, for clarity. As will be noted throughout this dashboard, some data sets have a lag time showing the impacts of COVID-19.

Data Source: Employees on Nonfarm Payrolls (early benchmarked through 2019 Q1 & seasonally adjusted), Downloaded from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
