Live Chat with BLS experts on Friday

by Calculated Risk on 3/30/2010 11:58:00 PM

The BLS will host a live chat on Friday starting at 9:30 AM ET.

You can submit questions in advance here or submit questions during the event. I'm planning on posting the event on the blog (I'm not involved), so you can (hopefully) read the Q&A and ask questions from the blog on Friday morning.

I sent an advance question asking how we should adjust the seasonally adjusted headline payroll number for the NSA 2010 Census hiring data to try to determine the underlying trend (not counting the snow storms!).

Friday, April 2, 2010 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. EDT.

From the BLS: "BLS subject matter experts will take your questions on national employment and unemployment data, with a particular focus on the figures for March that will be released that morning at 8:30 a.m. EDT."
