Jobs Added Numbers Decrease in West and Midwest
Private sector employment increased in all four major regions and all nine U.S. Census Bureau Divisions during the month of May 2016, according to the monthly ADP Regional Employment Report®, which is produced by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, in collaboration with Moody’s Analytics, Inc. Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP Regional Employment Report measures monthly changes in regional nonfarm private employment on a seasonally adjusted basis.
“The South rebounded somewhat from a weak April as the loss of good-producing jobs slowed,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of the ADP Research Institute®. “The South Atlantic states, North and South Carolina, Florida and Georgia continue to drive growth, picking up the slack from the still struggling Oil Patch states.”
On June 2, 2016, the ADP National Employment Report® reported that total U.S. private sector employment increased by 173,000 jobs from April to May.
