Job Change Post-Recessions

Nice chart comparing the post recession job recoveries going back to 1969, via NYT:

“After the last recession ended – determined Monday to be June 2009 – employment in the United States fell at a faster pace than after earlier recessions. And this recovery looks similar to the periods of little job creation after the 1990-91 and 2001 recessions.”



The chart below makes it clear that the post-2001 recession was an unusually long job recovery period. Post 2008-09 is likely to be even longer . . .
