201,000 Hired in August 2012

 

According to a new ADP National Employment Report, private-sector employment in the United States increased by 201,000 in August 2012, the biggest single-month gain in five months, blowing away forecaster’s predictions for the month. The ADP report is based on data from businesses in the private sector and excludes government job growth. Macroeconomic Advisers LLC in St. Louis produces the data with ADP.

The biggest gains came in small business employment as businesses with less than 50 employees grew by 99,000 jobs. Those with 50 to 499 employees grew by 86,000 and large businesses, which have 500 or more employees, grew by 16,000.
