The official Twitter prediction for today’s non-farm payrolls report is 95K.This was based on 59 Twitter guesses using the hashtag #NFPGuesses through 7:46 a.m.


Wall Street sell-side analysts forecasts today’s headline non-farm payrolls number will top last month’s 80,000 read, with the economy expanding by some 100K new jobs.

Separately, the Business Insider house model forecasts payroll gains of 106,000, above the Street’s consensus.

The last time Business Insider tallied this number, the consensus Twitter estimate was 92K, which was ultimately above the actual 80K print — but it was closer than Wall Street’s consensus estimates (BI ultimately came closest with a 90K projection).
