Roseland, N.J. (PPD) — Total private sector employment rose 749,000 in September, beating the forecast for the ADP National Employment Report. Forecasts ranged from a low of 400,000 to a high of 1,000,000. The consensus forecast was 650,000.

The goods-producing sector added 196,000 private sector jobs. Construction added 60,000, manufacturing added 130,000 and natural resources/mining added 7,000.

However, small businesses continued to demonstrate slower growth.”
