El Centro, California.- Private sector employment increased by 215,000 jobs from November to December, according to the December ADP National Employment Report®, which is produced by Automatic Data Processing, Inc.

The November 2012 report, which reported job gains of 118,000, was revised upward by 30,000 to 148,000 jobs.

Carlos A. Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of ADP, said, “During the final month of 2012, U.S. private sector employment ended the year on a positive note as 215,000 jobs were added – the ADP National Employment Report’s largest monthly gain since February 2012.

During the past year, the private sector added a total of more than 1.7 million jobs.” Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, said,

“The job market held firm in December despite the intensifying fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington. Businesses even became somewhat more aggressive in their hiring at year end. Most encouraging is the revival in construction jobs, although the December gain was likely lifted by rebuilding after Superstorm Sandy. The job market ended 2012 on a more solid footing.”

The report, which is derived from ADP’s actual payroll data, measures the change in total nonfarm private employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis.
