Goods-producing employment rose by 15,000 jobs in January which was
primarily driven by an increase in construction jobs of 15,000.
Meanwhile, manufacturers shed 3,000 jobs.  
Service-providing jobs increased by 177,000. Among the service
industries reported by the ADP National Employment Report,
professional/business services registered the largest gain with
40,000 jobs added over the month. Trade/transportation/utilities
added 33,000 jobs and financial activities added 12,000 jobs.  
"U.S. private sector employment got off to a good start in 2013, as
192,000 jobs were added during the month of January," noted Carlos A.
Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of AD
P. "According
to the ADP National Employment Report, private sector employers
created an average of 183,000 new jobs per month during the last
three months. This is an encouraging sign of steady improvement in
the job market." 
Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, said, "The job
market is slowly, but steadily, improving. Monthly job gains appear
to have accelerated from near 150,000 to closer to 175,000.
Construction is finally kicking into gear and more than offsetting
the weakness in manufacturing. The recent gains may be overstating
any improvement, particularly in the context of recent revivals in
growth at the start of the past three years, but the gains are
encouraging nonetheless."

About the ADP National Employment Report(R) 
The ADP National Employment Report(R) 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(R), a
leading provider of human capital management solutions. The report,
which measures nearly 24 million U.S. workers, is produced 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. 
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
both 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. 
For a description of the underlying data and the statistical model
used to create this report, please see "ADP National Employment
Report: Development Methodology" at
