U.S. Releases on their Way

The Labor Department said on Thursday that it would release its report on September employment on Tuesday, as it provided a fresh schedule for some economic data that had been postponed due to a partial government shutdown.   It also said it would release the consumer price index for September on Oct. 30 and the producer price index for September on Oct. 29.

In addition, the department said it was delaying the release of the employment report covering October until Nov. 8. It was previously scheduled for release on Nov. 1.

In its last monthly employment report, the Labor Department said 169,000 jobs were added to nonfarm payrolls in August and the unemployment rate was little changed at 7.3 percent.
