In June, for the second consecutive month, three U.S. regions accounted for more than half of all private sector jobs added to payrolls nationwide, Automatic Data Processing Inc. said July 10.
Employment increased last month in all regions and all 29 states tracked by the Roseland, N.J.-based consulting firm and Moody's Analytics.
“All nine U.S. Census Bureau divisions recorded private sector job growth in June, with the South Atlantic, Pacific, and West South Central generating the most new jobs for the second consecutive month,” Ahu Yildirmaz, lead economist and senior director of the ADP Research Institute, said.
The region with the largest job gain in June was the South Atlantic (36,000), led by Florida (12,910), Virginia (5,730), and Georgia (4,880), according to seasonally adjusted estimates.
The next-biggest increase occurred in the Pacific region (33,000), principally in California (31,040), which led all states in producing jobs.
Texas (23,420) posted the highest job growth in the West South Central area (29,000).
Combined employment in the three regions jumped by 98,000 jobs, accounting for a majority of the nationwide increase of 188,000 private sector jobs last month. ADP's latest national employment report, which was released July 3, marked an improvement from May's gain of 134,000 jobs (129 DER EE-9, 7/5/13).
The Labor Department employment report for June showed employers in the private and public sectors combined added 195,000 jobs in each of the last two months, while the unemployment rate held steady at 7.6 percent (130 DER EE-1, 7/8/13).
The ADP June regional employment report was the third in a new monthly series launched by the firm and Moody's, starting in June with the release of May data.
The details of last month's employment figures for California also were positive, Yildirmaz told BNA.
Goods-producing industries added 3,000 jobs after shedding 1,000 jobs in May, while service-providing industries boosted payrolls by 28,000 jobs in June, up from a gain of 11,000 jobs the prior month.
Other major job-producing states last month included New York (10,000), Pennsylvania (9,370), and Illinois (8,500).
The region with the weakest job growth in June was New England (7,000), followed by the East South Central area (10,000), which includes Alabama, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and the West North Central area (11,000), including Minnesota, Nebraska, and Missouri.
The ADP estimates are based on a nationally representative sample of payroll data from the company's clients, which employ about one out of six private sector workers, or 24 million people.
Employment by state is determined by workplace location. In most cases, ADP's approach to measuring state employment aligns with that of the DOL Bureau of Labor Statistics, but in some cases, a payroll located in a certain state may include employees from one or more states outside that state, according to the company.
