re: Gallup: Unemployment up to 8.3% (Posted on 12/6/12 at 4:05 pm to Bard)

I completely agree, as the Gallup numbers are for the actual month of November, whereas the BLS number is for the period from mid-October through mid-November. Gallup rarely agrees with the BLS number, which is indeed being released early tomorrow morning. They (Gallup) use a different measurement than BLS does.
