The adverb "unexpectedly" gets a rest today.  It has earned it.

It may be the first Friday of the month but there will be no jobs report from the BLS. To ease the pain of those for whom this is well-neigh unendurable, James Pethokoukis extrapolates data from various sources and puts together a replacement jobs report.

Best anyone can do. And good enough for non-government work.
