US gov't to release September jobs report Oct. 22

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Labor Department will release the September employment report on Tuesday now that Congress has reopened the government.

The report had been delayed 2½ weeks because of the partial government shutdown.

Labor also says it will postpone the October employment report for one week. It will now be issued on Nov. 8. The extra time is likely needed for government officials to gather data, which they couldn't do during the shutdown. The September report was mostly completed before the shutdown began Oct. 1.

Other delayed Labor reports will also be released in the next two week. The government will report on August job openings and labor turnover on Oct. 24, September wholesale inflation on Oct. 29 and the September consumer price index, which measures broader inflation, on Oct. 30.
