AJSN Revised and Updated - We're Currently 22 Million Jobs Short

Thank you for your comments and feedback!  I have corrected one data error, and have obtained Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and U.S. Census Bureau data released this past Friday.  We now have an American Job Shortage Number (AJSN) of 22.0 million, that on an official unemployment rate of 8.1% and 12,696,000 officially unemployed.  

As for historical data, I am working with the BLS to obtain monthly detail for years past.  Accordingly, I hope to post more later this week.
