Footnotes:

(p) preliminary.

Retail trade added 58,000 jobs in January, following essentially no change in December. Employment rose in general merchandise stores, electronics and appliance stores, motor vehicle and parts dealers, and furniture and home furnishing stores. Employment in retail trade has increased by 301,000 over the past 12 months, with motor vehicle and parts dealers and general merchandise stores accounting for nearly half of the gain.

Leisure and hospitality employment increased 44,000 in January. Within this industry, employment in food services and drinking places rose 47,000. Over the year, employment in food services and drinking places has increased by 384,000 jobs.

Employment in education and health services changed little in January, increasing by 6,000. Private educational services lost 39,000 jobs in January due to larger than normal seasonal layoffs. Health care continued to add jobs, increasing 37,000 in January. Health care has added 470,000 jobs over the past 12 months, with about 40 percent of the growth occurring in hospitals. Employment in hospitals increased 24,000 in January, the largest over-the-month employment gain ever recorded in the industry.

Manufacturing added 29,000 jobs in January, following little employment change in 2015. Over the month, job gains occurred in food manufacturing, fabricated metal products, and furniture and related products.

Employment in transportation and warehousing decreased by 20,000 in January. Most of the loss occurred among couriers and messengers, reflecting larger than usual layoffs following strong seasonal hiring in the prior 2 months.

Employment in mining (which includes oil and gas extraction) continued to decline in January, decreasing by 7,000. Since reaching a peak in September 2014, employment in the industry has fallen by 146,000, or 17 percent.

These data are from the Current Employment Statistics program. Data for the most recent 2 months are preliminary. To learn more, see "The Employment Situation — January 2016" (HTML) (PDF).
