ADP National Employment Report Shows 215,000 Jobs Added in November

Source: ADP®, Automatic Data Processing



ROSELAND, N.J. –December 4, 2013 –Private sector employment increased by 215,000 jobs from October to November, according to the November ADP National Employment Report®. Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP National Employment Report is produced by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, in collaboration with Moody’s Analytics. The report, which is derived from ADP’s actual payroll data, measures the change in total nonfarm private employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis.

Goods-producing employment rose by 40,000 jobs in November, up from 29,000 in October. Both construction and manufacturing payrolls added 18,000 jobs apiece. The gain for manufacturing was the largest since early 2012.

Service-providing industries added 176,000 jobs in November, up from 156,000 in October. This was the largest gain in the service sector in a year. Among the service industries reported by the ADP National Employment Report, trade/transportation/utilities added the most jobs with 45,000 over the month. Professional/business services employment rose by 38,000, while financial activities added 5,000 jobs.

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, said, "The job market remained surprisingly resilient to the government shutdown and brinkmanship over the treasury debt limit. Employers across all industries and company sizes looked through the political battle in Washington. If anything, job growth appears to be picking up.”

Good morning, Freepers and DUers alike. I especially welcome viewers from across the aisle. This information is important to you, regardless of your party affiliation. Please, everyone, put aside your differences long enough to digest the information. After that, you can engage in your usual donnybrook.

What is important about these statistics is not so much this month’s number, but the trend. So let’s look at some earlier numbers.

2. Gotta chuckle at the counter-intuitive stock market.

Things are dinkin' and dunkin' down again because the bad guys are worried they won't get their cheap money anymore.

Good news is bad news if you are a hedgy.

Now if we could just improve wages at the low-end of the scale, we'd have a real economy.
