Non-farm jobs in Los Angeles rose by 9,700 from April 2012 to April 2013, the
city's economic development corporation said.
The fastest-growing job sector for the city is the entertainment industry, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
The number of jobs slipped slightly from March to April, but that reflected seasonal trends, the Times said.
From April 2012 to April 2013, the number of jobs in the city rose 2 percent to 3.9 million.
"All indicators in the first part of 2013 suggest that we're seeing improvement relative to where things were during the recession," said Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp.
Kleinhenz said gains in the number of television and film production jobs were boosting the local job market.
