Employment for both men and women is now very close to it's level in January 2009.

This is why Romney's latest claim--that women are 92% of job losses under Obama--is meaningless. Really, they're 92% of a very tiny number.

See the data for yourself. I see two important facts:
1. Employment is back very close to Jan 2009 levels.
2. The stronger employment recovery for men follows in roughly equal proportion to the sharper decline during the recession.

what is CPS?
other question: have the definitions of un/employment changed in the last 3 years (I don't think but just wondering).
anyway, thanks for sharing.
 
I would be interested in seeing how this compares with other recessions.
