MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Data showing how many jobs Wisconsin added in the last three months of 2011 that became a ajor issue in Gov. Scott Walker's recall election is set to be released.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is scheduled to release the jobs data for Wisconsin and all 49 other states on Thursday.
Walker caused a ruckus in May when he released Wisconsin's data early. Walker said the information showed Wisconsin actually added 23,608 jobs in 2011 based on the census of nearly all of the state's businesses.
Another measure, which surveyed only a small portion of businesses, determined the state lost nearly 34,000 jobs last year.
Democrats accused Walker of cooking the books to make the jobs numbers appear better than they were in advance of the recall.
