ADP Regional Employment Report: Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Nevada and Utah Among U.S. States With Strongest Private Sector Monthly Job Growth Rates in August

Mountain Region Records Strongest Job Growth Rate in August, Followed by South Atlantic and East South Central Regions

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - Private sector employment increased in all nine U.S. Census Bureau Divisions during the month of August 2013, according to the monthly ADP Regional Employment Report(SM), which is produced by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc. Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP Regional Employment Report measures monthly changes in regional nonfarm private employment on a seasonally adjusted basis.

"During the month of August, the Mountain region, which includes Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah among other states, showed the strongest monthly private sector job growth rate among U.S. Census Bureau regions," said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute®. "While growth held steady last month in a few large states, such as New York, Texas and Florida, California's monthly job growth rate weakened. Together, these four states and Illinois were responsible for generating more than a third of all new private sector jobs in August."

On September 5, 2013, the ADP National Employment Report® reported that total U.S. private sector employment increased by a total of 176,000 jobs from July to August.

** 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.

About the ADP National Employment Report®
The ADP National Employment Report® is a monthly measure of the change in total U.S. nonfarm private employment derived from actual, anonymous payroll data of client companies served by ADP®, a leading provider of human capital management solutions. The report, which measures nearly 24 million U.S. workers, is published by the ADP Research Institute®, a specialized group within the company that provides insights around employment trends and workforce strategy, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc.

Each month, ADP issues the ADP National Employment Report as part of the company's commitment to adding deeper insights into the U.S. labor market and providing businesses, governments and others with a source of credible and valuable information. The ADP National Employment Report is broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge.

The ADP Small Business Report® 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.
