Labor Market Information - Connecticut Industry Sector Employment
  Industry Sectors Employment (CES) - State of Connecticut Last Updated: March 27, 2014

Five industry supersectors gained jobs in February and five were down. This is also true at the moment for industry gains over the year. The five growing supersectors in February were led by the professional and business services (3,000, 1.48%).  This supersector was sharply lower in January (-2,600) and more than regained that loss.  The combined construction and mining (1,500, 2.7%) industry supersector was also higher in February after just a small 100 job loss in the very stormy January. Construction is now the fastest growing industry grouping in percentage terms (3,800, 7.1% over the year).  Other services (600, 1.0%) and leisure and hospitality (600, 0.4%) supersectors both gained jobs, recovering some losses from last months’s cold as well.  The information supersector (100, 0.3%) grew slightly.

Monthly job losses came largely from the manufacturing (-1,900, -1.2%) supersector and government (-1,900, -0.8%) entities.  Manufacturing experienced a significant durable goods segment decline (-2,000, -1.6%) while nondurable goods components were slightly higher (100, 0.3%).  The government supersector was lower at all three levels; federal (-100, -0.6%), state (-1,400, -2.0%) and local (-400,-0.3%).  Smaller job losses of less than a thousand came from financial activities (-500, -0.4%), education and health services (-400, -0.1%), and trade, transportation, and utilities (-300, -0.1%).
