MSAs Over 1 million Jobs

 

Updated March 24, 2017

The table below provides job growth data for Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) with one million or more non-farm jobs in the current month. The table is based on the most recent non-agricultural Current Employment Statistics (CES) data released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Job Growth and Number of Jobs are displayed in thousands. Users select the month and year, industries and growth measures from drop down boxes.

Month over Month figures are seasonally adjusted while all other measures are calculated from non-seasonally adjusted data. Year over Year percentage changes and job growth compare the selected month with that same month in the prior year. The Year to Date measure compares average employment from January through the desired month with the same period in the prior year. For example, to see first half growth for an industry in a state, select June as the month. The 12 Month Moving Average compares average employment during 12 months ending in the selected month with average employment in the 12 months ending in that same month one year before. To find the annual average growth for an industry for a particular year, select 12 Month Moving Average or Year to Date and December for the desired year.
