Hiring in U.S. Hasn't Been This Broad-Based Since 2015: ChartBy
Companies in February added the most workers in seven months, and the hiring stretched across more industries. The Labor Department’s so-called diffusion index, which measures the breadth of hiring in 261 private industries, climbed to a 14-month high of 63. It was also the second-highest since February 2015, helped by the biggest monthly jump in employment in goods-producing sectors in nearly 17 years, according to the agency’s job report on Friday.
