Washington Area Employment - April 2015

Local Rate of Employment Growth was Close to the National Average

Total nonfarm employment for the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va. Metropolitan Statistical Area stood at 3,167,000 in April 2015, up 65,600, or 2.1 percent, over the year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. During the same period, the national job count increased 2.2 percent. Sheila Watkins, the Bureau’s regional commissioner, noted that the Washington area’s April increase was its 14th consecutive over-the-year employment gain. (See chart 1 and table 1; Technical Note at end of release contains metropolitan area definitions. All data in this release are not seasonally adjusted; accordingly, over-the-year analysis is used throughout.)

The Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va. Metropolitan Statistical Area is made up of two metropolitan divisions¾separately identifiable employment centers within the greater metropolitan area. The Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va. Metropolitan Division, with 81 percent of the area’s employment, gained 52,400 jobs over the year. The Silver Spring-Frederick-Rockville, Md. Metropolitan Division, which represented the remaining 19 percent of area employment, added 13,200 jobs since April 2014.

Industry employment

In the greater Washington metropolitan area, professional and business services recorded the largest employment gain from April 2014 to April 2015, adding 16,300 jobs. Still, the Washington area’s 2.3-percent growth in professional and business services employment was less than the nationwide increase of 3.6 percent. Almost all of the local job gains in this industry were centered in the Washington division (16,000). (See chart 2.)

Three other supersectors in Washington added at least 12,000 jobs since last April—education and health services (15,100); trade, transportation, and utilities (13,300); and government (12,300). The local rates of employment growth in all three of these supersectors exceeded their national growth rates.

Locally, two supersectors lost more than 1,000 jobs from April 2014 to April 2015—manufacturing and information. Both of these industries gained jobs nationwide.

Twelve largest metropolitan areas

Washington-Arlington-Alexandria was 1 of the nation’s 12 largest metropolitan statistical areas in April 2015. All 12 areas experienced over-the-year job growth during the period, with 7 areas exceeding the U.S. average of 2.2 percent. Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington had the fastest rate of job growth, 3.9 percent, followed by Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell; Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach; and San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, at 3.4 percent each. The slowest rates of job growth were in Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington (1.1 percent) and Chicago-Naperville-Elgin (1.3 percent). (See chart 3 and table 2.)

 Chart 3. Total nonfarm employment, over-the-year percent change, United States and 12 largest metropolitan areas, April 2015

 

Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim added the largest number of jobs, 160,100. New York-Newark-Jersey City and Dallas added more than 125,000 jobs. Philadelphia recorded the smallest employment gain (31,600), followed by Boston-Cambridge-Nashua (44,300).

Professional and business services registered the largest over-the-year employment gains in 6 of the 12 metropolitan areas–Boston, Chicago, Miami, Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, San Francisco, and Washington. Education and health services added the most jobs in three areas–Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia.

Manufacturing recorded the largest job losses in Chicago, New York, and Phoenix. Houston and Miami recorded no over-the-year job losses in any supersector.

Metropolitan area employment data for May 2015 are scheduled to be released on Friday, June 19, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. (ET).


Technical Note

This release presents nonfarm payroll employment estimates from the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program. The CES survey is a Federal-State cooperative endeavor between State employment security agencies and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Definitions. Employment data refer to persons on establishment payrolls who receive pay for any part of the pay period which includes the 12th of the month. Persons are counted at their place of work rather than at their place of residence; those appearing on more than one payroll are counted on each payroll. Industries are classified on the basis of their principal activity in accordance with the 2007 version of the North American Industry Classification System.

Method of estimation. The employment data are estimated using a “link relative” technique in which a ratio (link relative) of current-month employment to that of the previous month is computed from a sample of establishments reporting for both months. The estimates of employment for the current month are obtained by multiplying the estimates for the previous month by these ratios. Small-domain models are used as the official estimators for approximately 39 percent of CES published series which have insufficient sample for direct sample-based estimates.

Annual revisions. Employment estimates are adjusted annually to a complete count of jobs, called benchmarks, derived principally from tax reports which are submitted by employers who are covered under state unemployment insurance (UI) laws. The benchmark information is used to adjust the monthly estimates between the new benchmark and the preceding one and also to establish the level of employment for the new benchmark month. Thus, the benchmarking process establishes the level of employment, and the sample is used to measure the month-to-month changes in the level for the subsequent months.

Reliability of the estimates. The estimates presented in this release are based on sample surveys, administrative data, and modeling and, thus, are subject to sampling and other types of errors. Sampling error is a measure of sampling variability—that is, variation that occurs by chance because a sample rather than the entire population is surveyed. Survey data are also subject to nonsampling errors, such as those which can be introduced into the data collection and processing operations. Estimates not directly derived from sample surveys are subject to additional errors resulting from the special estimation processes used. The sums of individual items may not always equal the totals shown in the same tables because of rounding.

Employment estimates. Measures of sampling error for state CES data at the supersector level are available on the BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. Information on recent benchmark revisions for states is available at www.bls.gov/sae/.

Area definitions. The substate area data published in this release reflect the standards and definitions established by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, dated December 1, 2009. A detailed list of the geographic definitions is available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

The Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va. Metropolitan Statistical Area includes the District of Columbia; Arlington, Clarke, Culpeper, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William, Rappahannock, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Warren Counties, and Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Manassas Park Cities in Virginia; Calvert, Charles, Frederick, Montgomery, and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland; and Jefferson County in West Virginia.

  • The Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va.

The Current Employment Statistics (CES) Survey is a monthly survey of business establishments which provides estimates of employment, hours, and earnings data by industry for the nation as a whole, all States, and most major metropolitan areas since 1939. The CES survey is a Federal-State cooperative program in which State employment security agencies prepare the data using concepts, definitions, and technical procedures prescribed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
