Labor Market Information - Connecticut Industry Sector Employment
  Industry Sectors Employment (CES) - State of Connecticut Last Updated: July 21, 2016
The state's Private Sector employment at 1,452,700 was also higher in June by 6,000 (0.41%) and is estimated to be higher by 16,400 jobs (1.14%, or 1,367 jobs per month) over the year. The Government supersector added 1,900 jobs (0.80%, 240,700 jobs) last month and is now positive over the year (1,500, 0.63%). Note that our data still does not reflect recent retirements and layoffs in state government as the effective date for many of these affected workers is July.

Seven of the ten major industry supersectors increased nonfarm employment in June 2016 and three declined (seasonally adjusted). Financial Activities (2,200, 1.7%, 134,100 jobs) led all industry job gainers last month. With June's gain Financial Activities now leads all supersectors in job growth over the year (4,100, 3.2%). The Education and Health Services (2,000, 0.6%, 330,300 jobs) supersector posted the next largest monthly job growth. Each of the Other Services (+1,900, +2.9%, 66,800) and the Government (+1,900, +0.8%, 240,700) supersectors added 1,900 positions in June. The Professional and Business Services supersector (+1,000, +0.5%, 218,300) offset a 1,800 decline in May. The Leisure and Hospitality (+800, +0.5%, 152,900 jobs) supersector exhibited continued healthy summer buildup, contributing 800 jobs. The smallest industry supersector, Information, also added a 400 job gain last month with some returning striking Verizon workers, and continues to lead in annual percentage job growth (+1,600, +4.9%, 34,100).

The Construction and Mining (-800, -1.5%, 59,100 jobs) and the Manufacturing (-800, -0.5%, 159,800) supersectors had identical seasonally adjusted job losses of 800 in June. The Trade, Transportation & Utilities (-700, -0.2%, 297,300 jobs) was the only other declining industry supersector in June. The retail trade (-1,100, -0.6%, 181,500) component in this sector was again responsible for the entire monthly drop in this supersector.
