(Note: The ADP report for March was released on Wednesday, and it showed an addition of 263,000 private sector jobs.)ADP is NOT the official government jobs number report. It is produced and published by payroll processor ADP and is usually released on a Wednesday two days before the big government Bureau of Labor Statistics report. Though it is not an official report, it tends to move in concert with the BLS report and is considered to foreshadow the BLS report which follows a couple of days later.
Note: The BLS jobs report was released on Friday, April 7. It showed an addition of 98,000 jobs, including 89,000 private sector jobs. More details HERE.
