Were these jobs created as a direct result of the stimulus?

From December 2010 to December 2011, the economy added 1.6 million jobs as reported by the department of labor. And the major categories go as follows: retail: 240,000 Mining: 90,000 Health care: 315,000 Leisure (including bars,restaurants, and all that) 230,000 Professional/Business services 400,000 How do I know how many of these jobs were a direct result of the stimulus? Did a lot of stimulus money go into healthcare? How did the stimulus create professional jobs? What about the leisure and hospitality? Did people use Obama's social security tax breaks to go out to restaurants and bars more often than they used to? If the stimulus created these jobs, God bless Obama. I'm just trying to figure out if another stimulus would help. I really thought those energy tax credits for installing energy efficient windows would help, but the company who installed my energy efficient windows 2 years ago is now out of business. I did leave out those unemployment claims, which are not counted against the jobs created.

366000 new jobless claims this week. 5 million unemployed for more than a year. 25 underemployed. Hardly a blessing if you ask me./
