Prime recipients of Recovery awards are required to estimate and report the number of jobs funded by the Recovery Act. Recipients calculate jobs as follows:
If three employees work on a Recovery-funded project for a total of 1,300 hours in a given quarter, and the recipient defines a full-time job as 520 hours (40 hours per week, for 13 weeks), the recipient would report 2.5 jobs (1,300/520 = 2.5).
*The job estimates for Quarter 1, 2010 do not include Rhode Island which was granted an extension for reporting until July 2010 due to extensive flooding in the state.
*The job estimates for Quarter 2, 2011 do not include estimates from the Minnesota state agencies which received waivers due to the state government's shut down.
