About This Statistic

This statistic shows the seasonally adjusted number of part-time employees in the United States. In line with the definition of the BLS, part-time workers are persons who usually work less than 35 hours per week. Seasonal adjustment is a statistical method for removing the seasonal component of a time series used when analyzing non-seasonal trends. Whereas, not-seasonally-adjusted reflects the actual current data. In January 2017, about 27.41 million people were employed on a part-time basis.
