ADP National Employment Report: Private Sector Employment Increased by 200,000 Jobs in September.

ADP’s report on private sector employment didn’t disappoint. WASHINGTON — Buoyed by strong consumer spending and steady home sales, U.S. businesses added jobs at a healthy pace in September, according to a private survey. While payrolls aren’t rising quite as fast now as at their peak late last year, said Ian Shepherdson of Pantheon Macroeconomics, leading indicators of payroll growth—such as jobless claims—remain firm. Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP National Employment Report is produced by ADP® 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. The additions to company headcounts are consistent with resilient demand in the U.S. even as some industries face challenges of weaker overseas sales.

Of the 200k net new jobs, 12k came from the goods producing side but the breakdown was very mixed as construction added 35k jobs while the manufacturing side cut 15k (we’ve seen weak regional manufacturing survey’s across the board in September), the weakest since December ‘10. Moody’s produces the figures with ADP. “Despite job losses in the energy and manufacturing industries, the economy is creating close to 200,000 jobs per month. Economists forecast that report will show that employers added 206,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate held at 5.1 percent for the second straight month. At this pace, full employment is fast approaching.” Goods-producing industries, which include manufacturers and builders, increased headcounts by 12,000, the ADP report showed.

A schedule of future release dates, as well as additional information about franchise employment, charts on monthly job growth and employment levels, and historical data is available at That has encouraged more homebuilding: Developers started construction on 11 percent more homes in the first eight months of this year than at the same point in 2014. The September jobs report issued by the Labor Department may show private businesses added about 200,000 employees after a 140,000 increase in August, according to the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg.
