Why is NFPs figure highly significant? Trade market volatility
before and after NFPs release
  • Change in NFPs: Monthly change in employment excluding the farming sector.
  • Most closely watched indicator, considered the most comprehensive measure of job creation in the US.
  • A surge in new NFPs suggests rising employment and potential inflation pressures, which the Federal Reserve System often counters with rate increases.
  • A consistent decline in Non-farm Employment suggests a slowing economy, which makes a decline in rates more likely.
