ROSELAND, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/13 -- Private sector employment increased in all nine U.S. Census Bureau Divisions during the month of April 2013, according to the first monthly ADP Regional Employment Report(SM). This new report is produced by ADP®, a leading provider of global human capital management solutions, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc. The ADP Regional Employment Report measures monthly changes in regional nonfarm private employment on a seasonally adjusted basis.

"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."

On May 1, 2013, the ADP National Employment Report® reported total U.S. private sector employment increased by a total of 119,000 jobs from March to April.

About the ADP Regional Employment Report(SM)
The ADP Regional Employment Report(SM), which is produced by ADP in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc., is a monthly estimate of private nonfarm employment in nine U.S. Census Bureau divisions, as well as 29 U.S. states, plus the District of Columbia. The report is a measure of employment derived from an anonymous subset of roughly 406,000 U.S. business clients, which employ more than 23 million workers in the U.S.

About the ADP National Employment Report®
The ADP National Employment Report®, which is produced by ADP in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc., is a measure of employment derived from an anonymous subset of roughly 406,000 U.S. business clients, which employ more than 23 million workers in the U.S. 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 all three 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.
