ADP Employment Report For September 2011

The recent report released discusses how there have been more jobs added to the economy:

Private-sector employment increased by 91,000 from August to September on a seasonally adjusted basis, according to the latest ADP National Employment Report® released today.  The ADP National Employment Report, created by Automatic Data Processing, Inc.

(ADP®), in partnership with Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC, is derived from actual payroll data and measures the change in total nonfarm private employment each month.  The estimated advance in employment from July to August was revised down only slightly to 89,000 from the initially reported 91,000.

U.S. Nonfarm Private Employment Highlights – September, 2011 Report:

Small businesses: +60,000

Medium businesses: +36,000

Large businesses:  -  5,000

Goods-producing sector:+ 1,000

Service-providing sector: + 90,000

Manufacturing industry:  -  5,000

Total employment: +91,000

According to today’s ADP National Employment Report, employment in the nonfarm private business sector rose 91,000 from August to September on a seasonally adjusted basis.

Employment in the private, service-providing sector rose 90,000 in September, up slightly from an increase of 83,000 in August.  Employment in the private, goods-producing sector rose a scant 1,000 in September, while manufacturing employment declined by 5,000.

“Like August, this month’s jobs report continues to show modest job creation,” said Gary C. Butler, Chief Executive Officer of ADP. “The number of jobs added to the private sector in August and September were virtually identical.

Once again, the small business services-sector led the way, contributing almost two-thirds of all new jobs. Small businesses overall showed positive growth for the 22nd straight month and averaged 73,000 jobs a month for the past 12 months. Professional business services, education and healthcare, and leisure services led all other sectors in new jobs added.”

According to Joel Prakken, Chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC, “Today’s ADP National Employment Report suggests that employment grew moderately in September.

The recent trend in private employment, as indicated by the ADP National Employment Report, remains moderate, and probably is below a pace consistent with a stable unemployment rate.  Moderate growth in employment is consistent with the recent deceleration of GDP.” 

Prakken continued: “Employment on medium payrolls those with 50 to 499 workers rose 36,000 and employment on large payrolls those with 500 or more workers declined 5,000.  Employment in the construction industry fell 2,000 in September, partially reversing a rise of 7,000 in August.
