With over 55 years of experience in the small businesses community, we know that small businesses look for key data to make informed decisions about day-to-day business activities.
Nonfarm private employment among small businesses in June grew 91,000, said Joel Prakken, Chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC. This month's ADP Small Business Report suggests an acceleration of employment.
Prakken added, Small businesses accounted for nearly two-thirds of the increase in total employment from businesses of all sizes in June. The gains in employment at small businesses were concentrated in the service-providing sector of the economy, but also rose by 7,000 in the goods-producing sector. This growth is in contrast to an overall decline in employment among goods-producing businesses of all sizes.

The data 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 and the ADP Small Business Report are not representative of changes in ADPs total base of U.S. business clients or ADPs total base of U.S. small business clients.
