in Statewide/Top Headlines by

The latest ADP Regional Employment Report credits the Sunshine State with adding 21,400 private-sector jobs during the month of June.

Released Thursday, the report shows Florida’s growth second to only California, which during the same period saw 31,800 private- sector jobs created.

ADP estimates an increase of 400 jobs in Florida’s goods-producing sector and an increase of 21,000 jobs in the state’s service-producing sector.

Breaking down by industry: 100 natural resource, mining and construction jobs were created; 300 manufacturing jobs were realized; 4,300 professional and businesses services jobs became a reality, and 5,000 trade, transportation, and utility jobs came into existence.

The  June ADP Report’s regional break-down has Florida’s South region gaining the highest number of private-sector jobs nationwide, with 94,000 total jobs having been created in June of 2015.

The three other top national areas recognized by ADP are the West, which added 60,000 private-sector jobs, the Midwest, which added 44,000 private-sector jobs, and the Northeast, which added 38,000 new private-sector jobs — all in June of 2015.

Overall, the nation put together 237,000 new private-sector jobs during this same time period.

The report measures the change in regional and state nonfarm private employment each month, on a seasonally adjusted basis. Its  July 2015 report is scheduled for August 12 release.
