The Payroll Employment Challenge

How well can you predict this month’s change in non-farm employment?

Your can test your forecasting skill at the Payroll Employment Game site.  We have added some new features this month. 

First, you can play the game using a hypothetical set of data for four important indicators — last month’s Leading Economic Indicators, Consumer Confidence, the ISM manufacturing report, and weekly jobless claims.

Next, you can try your hand using the actual data.  The four series actually provide reasonable predictions, as you can see from the chart area.

Finally, you can post your high score to show off your predicting skill.
