    Goods-producing employment rose by 4,000 jobs in November as gains in
construction jobs of 23,000 more than offset the 16,000 decline in
manufacturing employment. 

    Service-providing jobs increased by 114,000. Among the service industries
reported by the ADP National Employment Report,
trade/transportation/utilities services had the largest gain with 22,000
jobs added over the month. Professional/business services added 16,000
jobs and financial activities added 13,000 jobs in November. 

    Carlos A. Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of ADP, said,
"This month's ADP National Employment Report shows an increase of 118,000
new jobs in November. Today's report shows that year-to-date employment
gains averaged 135,000 jobs per month."

    Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, said, "Superstorm Sandy
wreaked havoc on the job market in November, slicing an estimated 86,000
jobs from payrolls. The manufacturing, retailing, leisure and
hospitality, and temporary help industries were hit particularly hard by
the storm. Abstracting from the storm, the job market turned in a good
performance during the month. This is especially impressive given the
uncertainty created by the Presidential election and the fast-approaching
fiscal cliff. Businesses appear to be holding firm on their hiring and
firing decisions."

    About the ADP National Employment Report(R)

    The ADP National Employment Report(R) is a monthly measure of the change
in total U.S. nonfarm private employment derived from actual, anonymous
payroll data of client companies served by Automatic Data Processing,
Inc. (ADP(R)), a leading provider of human capital management solutions.
The report is produced by the ADP Research Institute, a specialized group
within the company that provides insights around employment trends and
workforce strategy, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc.

    The ADP National Employment Report's measure of employment is derived
from an anonymous subset of roughly 406,000 U.S. clients, which employ
more than 23 million U.S. workers. The ADP Small Business Report is a
monthly estimate of private nonfarm employment among companies in the
U.S. with 1-49 employees and is a subset of the ADP National Employment
Report. The data for both reports is collected for pay periods that can
be interpolated to include the week of the 12th of each month, and
processed with statistical methodologies similar to those used by the
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to compute employment from its monthly
survey of establishments. Due to this processing, this subset is modified
to make it indicative of national employment levels; therefore, the
resulting employment changes computed for the ADP National Employment
Report are not representative of changes in ADP's total base of U.S.
business clients.

to create this report, please see "ADP National Employment Report:
Development Methodology" at
