Employment Report Shows Florida and Texas Leading in Job Growth

Private sector employment in the U.S. increased in all nine Census Bureau Divisions during May, according to the monthly ADP Regional Employment Report, which is produced by ADP, a provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, in collaboration with Moody’s Analytics, Inc. The ADP Regional Employment Report measures monthly changes in regional non-farm private employment on a seasonally adjusted basis.

“Of the four major regions, the South continues to lead in jobs added,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of the ADP Research Institute.  “Although all four regions added fewer jobs than April, the South was the only one to still exceed its six-month average of jobs gained.”

On June 4, 2014, the ADP National Employment Report reported that total U.S. private sector employment increased by a total of 179,000 jobs from April to May.

* Sum of components may not equal total, due to rounding.

** Employment by state is determined by the location where employees work.  In most cases, this approach aligns with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ measure of establishment employment, reflecting the state where an employee works.  In some cases, a payroll located in a certain state may include employees from one or more states outside that state.
