Private Sector grew by 1,000 (0.1%) to 1,460,800 jobs over the month in January, and added 11,400 (0.8%) seasonally-adjusted jobs over the year. The Government supersector was unchanged in January to a total of 237,000, and is now unchanged over the year after the benchmark revision. The Government overnment supersector includes all federal, state and local employment, including public higher education and Native American casino employment located on tribal land.

Five of the ten major industry supersectors gained employment in January, while four declined. Construction and Mining led gainers with 2,300 net new jobs (3.7%, 63,700). The Manufacturing supersector was next with a 600 job gain (0.4%, 161,000). The Leisure and Hospitality supersector contributed 500 new positions (0.3%, 161,000); while Educational and Health Services added (0.1 %, 337,300). Finally, the Information supersector grew by 300 jobs (0.9%, 33,000). The Government supersector was unchanged.

The Professional and Business Services supersector led declines in January, losing 2,200 jobs (-1.0%, 217,300). Trade, Transportation & Utilities (-0.2%, 295,000) was next dropping 500 positions. Financial Activities fell by 300 jobs in January (-0.2%, 126,700) while Other Services lost 100 (-0.2% 64,700).

After the 2018 benchmark revision, Connecticut has now recovered 84.0% (101,000 jobs) of the 119,100 seasonally-adjusted jobs lost in the "Great Recession" (3/08-2/10). The job recovery is into its 107th month and the state needs an additional 19,300 net new jobs to reach an overall nonfarm employment expansion. The state's Private Sector continues its expansion from the recession and is at 103.0% (115,400) of the private sector jobs lost in that same employment downturn.
