Labor Market Information - State of Connecticut Nonfarm Employment
  Nonfarm Employment / Residents Employed - State of Connecticut Last Updated: July 15, 2021
Connecticut employment rose 3,500 (0.2%) in June 2021 (seasonally adjusted) to 1,592,900. Payroll jobs are now 102,000 (6.8%) positions above June 2020 levels. May's preliminary job gain of 7,800 (0.5%) was revised higher to 8,100 (0.5%). Connecticut has now recovered 64.6% (189,000) of the 292,400 positions lost in the March and April 2020 lockdown. Monthly nonfarm industry job estimates are developed from the business survey overseen by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program.

"Private sector jobs are up 8,100 over two months as the uneven monthly pattern continues," said Patrick Flaherty, Director of the Office of Research at the Connecticut Department of Labor. "Even with some recent weakness, Construction and Retail Trade have regained 70% or more of the jobs lost during the pandemic. The same is true for Management of Companies, Accommodation & Food Services, and private Education which have added jobs in each of the past two months."

Nonfarm employment estimates are derived from a survey of businesses to measure jobs by industry. The estimates include all full- and parttime wage and salary employees who worked during or received pay for the pay period which includes the 12th of the month. Excluded from these estimates are proprietors, self-employed workers, private household employees and unpaid family workers. In some cases, due to space constraints, all industry estimates are not shown. Call (860) 263-6275 for a more comprehensive breakout of nonfarm employment estimates. These data are developed in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The employed are all persons who did any work as paid employees or in their own business during the survey week, or who have worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a family member. Persons temporarily absent from a job because of illness, bad weather, strike or for personal reasons are also counted as employed whether they were paid by their employer or were seeking other jobs.

The unemployed are all persons who did not work, but were available for work during the survey week (except for temporary illness) and made specific efforts to find a job in the prior four weeks. Persons waiting to be recalled to a job from which they had been laid off need not be looking for work to be classified as unemployed.
