President Biden's first year was a busy and difficult one, in which he faced a continuing global pandemic, rising inflation, the end of the country's longest war in Afghanistan, the passage of historic infrastructure legislation and the stalling of his broader social and voting agenda, among many other challenges.

Another way to look at the highs and lows of 2021 is by the numbers — here are some key figures from Mr. Biden's first year as president.

6.4 million jobs added
In 2021, Mr. Biden's first year in office, the economy added a record 6.4 million jobs — an average of 537,000 jobs a month. Former President Trump saw 2.1 million jobs added during 2017, his first year in office, with an average of 182,000 jobs per month. This was slightly lower than the two prior years, 2015 and 2016. Former President Obama took office during the most dire economic crisis since the Depression. The economy lost 5 million jobs in 2009, averaging 416,000 jobs a month as the Great Recession, which began in 2008, continued.

3.9% unemployment rate
When Mr. Biden took office in January 2021, the unemployment rate was 6.3%. By December, it had fallen to 3.9%. Under Trump, the unemployment rate fell from 4.7% in January 2017 to 4.1% by December of that year. The unemployment rate was 7.8% in January 2009, when former President Obama took office, as the Great Recession took hold. It was 9.9% in December of that year, a tick down from 10% during the fall, at the peak of the economic downturn.

7% inflation
Under Mr. Biden, consumer prices rose 7% across 2021, which was the fastest rate of inflation in 40 years, amid supply chain disruptions due to the pandemic and high demand. Consumer prices rose 2.1% in 2017 across Trump's first year in office. Obama saw consumer prices increase 2.7% by the end of 2009.

27 states visited
Mr. Biden visited 27 states for presidential stops his first year in office, with Pennsylvania being the most-frequented state, after his home in Delaware.

Trips to nine of these states were aimed at responding to natural disasters like hurricanes, wildfires and winter storms, or other tragedies like his trip to Florida to tour the Surfside apartment collapse.

For the states the president did not travel to in his first year, First Lady Jill Biden has filled the gap, making trips to 12 states, many of them conservative.

COVID deaths in the U.S. (according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
2021: 451,475

2020: 385,453

COVID vaccination rate
Early in his administration, Mr. Biden aimed to get 70% of adult Americans at least one COVID shot by July 4. The nation was a little behind but finally reached that milestone about a month later, on August 2. Since he announced that goal, children as young as 5 years of age may now be vaccinated. Now, as of January 19, over 209.5 million Americans are fully vaccinated, and nearly 82 million have received a booster, according to the CDC. Nearly 74% of those 18 or older are fully vaccinated.

20 formal interviews
Mr. Biden has given 20 formal interviews with journalists, according to CBS News' count. Former President Barack Obama, for contrast, gave a whopping 158 interviews his first year in office, according to CBS News' count.

Here is the list of formal interviews Mr. Biden has given as president:

10 news conferences
President Biden has held 10 press conferences, and the most recent one, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, lasted nearly two hours. For comparison, former President Trump held 21 press conferences his first year in office, and former President Obama had 42 news conferences his first year. Mr. Biden's White House points out that the president has engaged in scores of regular informal interactions with the press.

1.7 million migrant apprehensions at the southern border in fiscal 2021
This number is a record, but it's partially inflated by the unusually high rate of repeat migrant border crossings. In the prior fiscal year, 2020, there were only 458,000 who crossed. That lower figure is attributed to the fact that it was the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over 1 million Title 42 border expulsions
Title 42 is the health regulation first used by the Trump administration in March 2020 to turn away asylum applicants at the border because of the contagiousness of COVID-13. But it has been used by the Biden administration, too, to expel migrants without allowing them to see an immigration judge or an asylum officer first. Over 1 million Title 42 expulsions have been carried out in Mr. Biden's first full 11 months, according to Customs and Border Protection data. The Trump administration carried out 400,000 Title 42 expulsions.

11,414 refugees admitted
In May, Mr. Biden raised the U.S. refugee cap to 62,500, raising it from Trump's historic low of 15,000. But ultimately, only 11,414 were admitted because the resettlement infrastructure underwent heavy cuts during the Trump era — the refugee resettlement agencies closed offices and scaled back services. For 2022, Mr. Biden has set an ambitious 125,000 refugee cap, which is likely not to be met because of the decimated resettlement infrastructure. In the three months of the 2022 fiscal year so far, only 3,268 have been admitted. And these numbers do not include tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees.

Immigration court backlog: nearly 1.6 million
The Biden administration's immigration court backlog recently increased to another all-time high, nearly 1.6 million cases. When Trump left office, there were 1.3 million pending immigration court cases.

41 federal circuit and district court judges confirmed by the Senate
President Biden has confirmed the highest number of circuit and district court judges of any president since Ronald Reagan, the White House noted in a statement in December. It went on to point out that "80% of those confirmed judges are women, with 53% being people of color."
