/PRNewswire/ -- Private sector employment increased by 106,000 jobs
in January and annual pay was up 7.3 percent year-over-year,
according to the January ADP® National Employment

anonymized and aggregated payroll data of over 25 million U.S.
employees to provide a representative picture of the labor market.
The report details the current month's total private employment

million employees over a 12-month period.

employment during our reference week," said Nela Richardson, chief economist, ADP.
"Hiring was stronger during other weeks of the month, in line
with the strength we saw late last year."
