This chart shows the annual and monthy change in private, nonfarm US payrolls since 2002. Since plummeting at the end of 2009, payrolls have increased steadily, showing signs of recovery.

Today, private staffing and business services firm ADP released the latest installment of their National Employment Report indicating that the situation for private employment in the U.S. improved in March as private employers added 209,000 jobs in the month bringing the total employment level 1.75% above the level seen in March 2011.

Perusing the rest of the data in the ADP dataset you can see the the economy is currently showing the most growth for small to mid-sized service providing jobs with goods-producing jobs remaining near trough levels.

Look for Friday’s BLS Employment Situation Report to likely show somewhat similar trends.
