ADP Report: 216,000 Private Sector Jobs Added in February

Tim Boyle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Private employers in the U.S. added 216,000 new jobs in February, marking the fifth straight month of strong employment gains, according to the latest national employment report released Wednesday by ADP.

The report found that employment in the service-providing sector grew by 170,000 jobs last month, while the goods-producing sector increased by 46,000 jobs.

ADP's survey is often a precursor to the government's monthly jobs report -- slated to be released Friday.

Meanwhile, the latest worker productivity report, released Wednesday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, found a gain of nearly 1 percent in output per hour by American workers in the final quarter of 2011.

ADP Employment Report is Better Than Expected

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(ROSELAND, NJ) – According to the National Employment Report released by payroll processing firm ADP Wednesday, non-farm private business sector employment rose 91,000 in September, from 89,000 in August. Employment in the private, service providing sector rose to 90,000 in September, up from an increase of 83,000 in August.

Additionally, according to the ADP report, employment in the private, good producing sector rose only 1,000 in September. The report says manufacturing employment, unfortunately, declined by 5,000.

 The ADP number often provides early clues about what could be coming in the monthly government report. But it does not take into account what may be happening to public sector employment where there has been recent jobs cuts.

ADP Report: 157,000 Private Sector Jobs Added in June

Creatas Images/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Private sector employment jumped some 157,000 jobs last month, according to the ADP employment report released Thursday.

The increase is more than double the predicted 70,000 positions, and is expected to help Wall Street's trading. In the report's breakdown, the service sector gained 130,000 jobs, while the slowing manufacturing sector added 24,000 jobs.

The figures are a major improvement from the employment picture in May, in which reportedly just 36,000 jobs were added.
