related to Recovery Act spending and allows for the reporting of potential fraud, waste, and abuse.

 Jobs Summary - National

Choose a quarter and click "Go."

The Recovery Act required prime recipients of ARRA awards to estimate and report the number of jobs funded in a particular quarter. The jobs were calculated using the following formula:

Number of hours worked in a quarter divided by number of hours defined as a full-time job. So if three employees worked on an ARRA-funded project for a total of 1,300 hours in a given quarter, and the recipient defined a full-time job as 520 hours (40 hours per week, for 13 weeks), the recipient reported 2.5 jobs (1,300/520 = 2.5).

In January 2014, in the Omnibus Spending bill, Congress repealed the reporting requirement for recipients. January 2014 was the last time recipients reported and the jobs numbers for Quarter 4, 2013 were updated for the last time on May 1, 2014.

*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.
