ADP: Mountain region posts strongest employment growth

September 11 2013

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

“During the month of August, the Mountain region, which includes Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah among other states, showed the strongest monthly private sector job growth rate among U.S. Census Bureau regions,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute. “While growth held steady last month in a few large states, such as New York, Texas and Florida, California’s monthly job growth rate weakened. Together, these four states and Illinois were responsible for generating more than a third of all new private sector jobs in August.”
