Labor Market Information - Connecticut, Employment Sectors & United States Nonfarm Employment
  State of Connecticut, Employment Sectors & United States Nonfarm Employment Last Updated: August 15, 2019
Private Sector employment fell by 700 (-0.1%) to 1,457,800 jobs over the month in July, and now up by 5,600 (0.4%) seasonally-adjusted jobs over July 2018. The Government supersector in July (600, 0.3%) to a total of 234,900, but remains down 2,400 jobs (-1.0%) over the year. The Government supersector includes all federal, state and local employment, including public higher education and Native American casino employment located on tribal land.

Six of the ten major industry supersectors gained employment in July, while four declined. The above mentioned Government supersector led gainers adding 600 jobs (234,900). Information (1.5%, 33,400) was next with a gain of 500, while Other Services (0.6%, 63,800) picked up 400 jobs. Educational and Health Services added 300 net positions (0.1%, 340,800) and Financial Activities contributed 200 (0.2%, 128,000). Finally, the Trade, Transportation & Utilities supersector saw a small increase of 100 jobs (0.03%, 293,400).

Leisure and Hospitality led declines in July, dropping 1,000 positions (-0.6%, 160,700). Manufacturing was next with a 600 job loss (-0.4%, 160,600). Professional and Business Services (-0.1%, 219,600) and Construction and Mining (-0.5%, 57,500) both saw losses of 300 positions.

Connecticut has now recovered 79.7% (95,900 jobs) of the 120,300 seasonally adjusted jobs lost in the "Great Recession" (3/08-1/10). The job recovery is now into its 113th month and the state needs an additional 24,400 net new jobs to reach an overall nonfarm employment expansion. The state's Private Sector is fully recovered at 100.4% (112,400) of the 112,000 private sector jobs lost in that same employment downturn.
