Are California’s pandemic job losses overstated?

Let me offer a sliver of good economic news deep inside a very dark trend: California job losses early in the pandemic may have been smaller than what was initially reported. One of my favorite employment measurements — the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ “quarterly survey of employment and wages” — shows California losing an almost unthinkable 10.2% of its jobs in the year ended in 2020’s second quarter. While it’s hard to say anything other than “ugh,” the monthly state data for the same peri...
