September 5, 2013 An employment survey shows 176,000 more jobs on private employers' payrolls. The increase was less than July's estimated 198,000 gain. Meanwhile, the number of first-time claims for jobless benefits dipped last week and remain near a five-year low.
July 31, 2013 The U.S. economy grew by an annualized rate of 1.7 percent in the second quarter of 2013, according to gross domestic product data from the Commerce Department. And U.S. companies boosted payrolls by adding 200,000 new jobs from June to July.

May 1, 2013 Federal spending cuts and tax increases have started to bite, according to the latest ADP National Employment Report. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics will weigh in with its figures on unemployment and job growth in April.
April 3, 2013 The privately produced ADP National Employment Report showed less job growth than economists expected. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its data.
March 6, 2013 The job market remains "sturdy," according to the latest ADP National Employment Report. Much more will be known about the labor picture when the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its figures on Friday.

December 5, 2012 The ADP National Employment Report shows slower job growth than in October. The lingering effects of Superstorm Sandy get the blame.
