ADP Releases First Regional Employment Report: Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Utah and Arizona Show Largest Job Increases in April
“During the month of April, all nine U.S. Census Bureau Divisions recorded private sector job growth of varying degrees,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute(sm). “The regions showing the largest increases last month were the South Atlantic region, driven by Florida, Georgia and Virginia, and the West South Central region, driven by Texas. Together, these two regions generated a combined total of 60,000 private sector jobs – approximately half of all private sector jobs created during the month. Among the 29 individual U.S. states, plus the District of Columbia, tracked by the ADP Regional Employment Report, the states of Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Utah and Arizona recorded the largest job gains during the month of April.”
