The official wisdom-of-crowds Twitter prediction for today’s non-farm payrolls report is 112K.This was based on 80 Twitter guesses using the hashtag #NFPGuesses.
Wall Street sell-side analysts forecasts today’s headline non-farm payrolls number will top last month’s middling 115,000 reading, with the economy adding 150,000 new jobs.
Separately, the Business Insider house model forecasts payroll gains of 130,000, below the Street’s consensus.
The first time Business Insider tallied this number, the consensus Twitter estimate was 141K, which was ultimately above the actual 115K print — but it was closer than both the BI model and Wall Street’s consensus opinion.
