ADP: Job growth up in Census divisions, most large states

December 11 2013

Private-sector employment increased on a seasonally adjusted basis in November in all nine U.S. Census Bureau divisions, according to ADP’s monthly regional employment report. All 29 U.S. states tracked by the report, plus the District of Columbia, also recorded gains in November.

“U.S. regional and state private sector employment growth increased in November, as most regions and states measured showed job gains from the previous month. The South Atlantic region generated the largest number of new private sector jobs during November and was just behind the West South Central region in highest monthly growth rate,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute. “Meanwhile, at the state level, job growth increased in the larger states, with the exceptions of California and New Jersey.”

Texas, Florida, California, Pennsylvania and New York posted the largest job gains during the month; Kentucky and Washington State recorded the highest percentage increases at 0.36 percent and 0.33 percent respectively.
