Labor Market Information - Connecticut, Employment Sectors & United States Nonfarm Employment
  State of Connecticut, Employment Sectors & United States Nonfarm Employment Last Updated: July 18, 2019
Private Sector employment grew by 800 (0.1%) to 1,458,500 jobs over the month in June, and remains up 6,000 (0.4%) seasonally-adjusted jobs over June 2018. The Government supersector was down sharply in June (-2,200, -0.9%) to a total of 233,700, and is now down 2,000 jobs (-0.8%) over the year. Almost all of this decline was in local government which includes local education staff and casino employment. The Government supersector includes all federal, state and local employment, including public higher education and Native American casino employment located on tribal land.

Four of the ten major industry supersectors gained employment in June, while five declined. The Manufacturing supersector remained unchanged (160,700 total jobs). Educational and Health Services led gainers adding 1,600 jobs (0.5%, 340,700). The Financial Activities supersector (0.5%, 128,000) was next with a gain of 600 jobs. The Professional and Business Services (0.2%, 220,100) supersector picked up 400 jobs while Leisure and Hospitality added 100 (0.1%, 161,500) total jobs.

The above mentioned Government sector led employment losses in June. Construction and Mining was next, losing 1,100 positions (-1.9%, 57,900). Other Services dropped 400 (-0.6%, 63,300), while the Trade, Transportation & Utilities supersector declined by 300 (-0.1%, 293,700). Finally, the Information supersector saw a small decline of 100 jobs (-0.3%, 32,600).

Connecticut has now recovered 79.3% (95,400 jobs) of the 120,300 seasonally adjusted jobs lost in the "Great Recession" (3/08-1/10). The job recovery is now into its 112th month and the state needs an additional 24,900 net new jobs to reach an overall nonfarm employment expansion. The state's Private Sector is fully recovered at 101.0% (113,100) of the 112,000 private sector jobs lost in that same employment downturn.
