An analyst hadincluded teachers on summer vacation as being unemployed, but LaborDepartment policy states that teachers on summer vacation are consideredemployed. An economist with the department had warned on the day of therelease that the report was misleading. The number of job losses isbelieved to be closer to 23,000, although that number will be revisedand released again.
