  State of Connecticut, Employment Sectors & United States Nonfarm Employment Last Updated: July 19, 2018
Private Sector grew by 7,600 (0.5%) to 1,470,700 jobs over the month in June, and grew by 19,400 (1.3%) seasonally-adjusted jobs over the year. The Government supersector lost 1,500 positions in June to a total of 228,100, with over-the-year losses at -4,500 or -1.9%. The Government supersector includes all federal, state and local employment, including public higher education and Native American casino employment located on tribal land.

Seven of the ten major industry supersectors gained employment in June, while three declined. The Leisure and Hospitality supersector led growing industries with 2,400 net new jobs (1.5%, 158,500 total jobs) in June while Educational and Health Services (0.6%, 341,100) was next, adding 1,900 new positions. Construction and Mining grew by 1,200 (2.0%, 61,300) and Professional and Business Services added 1,100 (0.5%, 222,300). Manufacturing grew by 900 (0.6%, 164,000) in June while Financial Activities grew by 400 (0.3%, 127,900). Finally, the Information supersector grew by 200 jobs (0.7%, 30,900) last month.

In addition to the Government supersector mentioned above, the Other Services supersector dropped 400 jobs (-0.6%, 65,200) in June, while Trade, Transportation & Utilities lost 100 positions (-0.0%, 299,500).

Connecticut has now recovered 87.8% (104,600 jobs) of the 1,9,100 seasonally adjusted jobs lost in the "Great Recession" (3/08-2/10). The job recovery is into its 100th month and the state needs an additional 14,500 net new jobs to reach an overall nonfarm employment expansion. The state's Private Sector has now recovered 111.2% (124,200) of the private sector jobs lost in that same employment downturn.
