“In our continuing effort to track the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic on nonprofit employment, this report documents our estimates of COVID-induced nonprofit job losses through May 2021, as reflected in the May BLS Employment Situation Report. Following a weak showing in April, May’s BLS data reported a more robust gain of 492,000, private non-farm jobs nationwide during the month.
