Bureau of Labor Statistics: the official unemployment rate is 9.6%, up slightly by 0.1% from July. The broader measurement of unemployment (U6) is up from July as well; it is 16.7%, up from 16.5%. Things are basically moving sideways right now.
More as time permits, and analysis rolls in.
UPDATE: The initial consensus is that things are improving (but slowly) and that the uptick in unemployment is happening as discouraged workers come back into the market. Thanks, as always, to Calculated Risk for the graph.
