ADP Regional Employment Report: Big Gap in Jobs Added Between South and Other Regions

“Surprisingly, the West was the only one of the four major regions to fall below its 12-month average of jobs added,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of the ADP Research Institute(R). “The Midwest moved slightly ahead of the West in job gains, although still well behind the South.”

On July 30, 2014, the ADP National Employment Report(R) reported that total U.S. private sector employment increased by a total of 218,000 jobs from June to July.

** 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.

The ADP Small Business Report(R) is a monthly estimate of private nonfarm employment among companies in the U.S. with 1-49 employees and is a subset of the ADP National Employment Report. The data for all three reports is collected for pay periods that can be interpolated to include the week of the 12th of each month, and processed with statistical methodologies similar to those used by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to compute employment from its monthly survey of establishments. Due to this processing, this subset is modified to make it indicative of national employment levels; therefore, the resulting employment changes computed for the ADP National Employment Report are not representative of changes in ADP’s total base of U.S. business clients.
