    Net job impact of stimulus zero, from SF Federal Reserve study
    Richard Baehr

    A study by Daniel J. Wilson of the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank, suggests that the net job creation from the $814 billion stimulus bill passed in February, 2009, was zero by August 2010. In the first year, the stimulus "saved or created" 2 million jobs (not 4 million as repeatedly claimed by the Administration), but this number proved to be short lived, paying for temporary jobs, at a very high cost of $400,000 per job "saved or created."

    By August, 2010, the impact of the stimulus on net job creation had disappeared.

    The Census Bureau got some stimulus money, but that wasn't used for most Census positions. I think they got some money for the Partnership program and for advertising, but other than that Census money was separately appropriated.
