September's unemployment report won't be ready until next month

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It will be almost another month before we know how Wisconsin's job situation is doing. 

The normal monthly unemployment report was not issued this month, because the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics never produced the data, because of the federal government shutdown. 

Normally, we'd get estimates by now of how many jobs were created in the Badger State in September, along with both the state and local jobless rates. 

Officials say those reports are on the way -- but the first one won't be ready for release until November 21st.
