Philadelphia Area Employment – February 2014

Local Rate of Employment Growth Below National Average

Total nonfarm employment for the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, Pa.-N.J.-Del.-Md. Metropolitan Statistical Area stood at 2,720,700 in February 2014, up 6,800, or 0.3 percent, over the year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. During the same period, the national job count increased 1.6 percent. Sheila Watkins, the Bureau’s regional commissioner, noted that the Philadelphia area’s February increase was its 22nd consecutive over-the-year employment gain. (See chart 1 and 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.)

Chart 1. Total nonfarm employment, over-the-year net change in the Philadelphia metropolitan area and its divisions, February 2005-February 2014

The Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, Pa.-N.J.-Del.-Md. Metropolitan Statistical Area is made up of three metropolitan divisions¾separately identifiable employment centers within the greater metropolitan area. Two of the three divisions saw employment increases over the year. The Philadelphia Metropolitan Division, with 69 percent of the area’s employment, gained 6,500 jobs since last February. The Wilmington Metropolitan Division, with 12 percent of local employment, added 6,000 jobs over the last 12 months. In contrast, the Camden Metropolitan Division, which made up the remainder of local employment, lost 5,700 jobs over the year.

Industry employment

In the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area, professional and business services recorded the largest employment gain from February 2013 to February 2014, adding 7,400 jobs, accounting for the majority of the area’s total employment increase. The Philadelphia area’s 1.7-percent growth in professional and business services employment was less than half of the nationwide increase of 3.7 percent. All three metropolitan divisions shared in the jobs gains for this industry. (See chart 2.)

Leisure and hospitality employment increased by 3,000 since last February, the second-largest gain in the Philadelphia area. All of the increase was centered in the Philadelphia division (4,700), particularly Philadelphia city (3,400). The local growth rate for leisure and hospitality (1.3 percent) was less than half of that for the nation (3.0 percent).

Chart 2. Over-the-year percent change in employment by selected industry supersector, United States and the Philadelphia metropolitan area, February 2014

Two other supersectors (mining, logging, and construction and education and health services) each gained 2,800 jobs in the Philadelphia area from February 2013 to February 2014. Even so, the local rate of growth for education and health services was just one-third of the pace of national growth for this supersector.

In the Philadelphia area, government lost the most jobs (-4,200) since last year. The government job loss occurred in the Philadelphia and Camden divisions. Over the year, the Philadelphia area also lost jobs in three other supersectors: information (-3,200), other services (-2,200), and manufacturing (-1,000).

Twelve largest metropolitan areas

Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington was 1 of the nation’s 12 largest metropolitan statistical areas in February 2014. Eleven of these areas experienced over-the-year job growth, with six exceeding the national average of 1.6 percent. The fastest rate of job growth was registered in Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, up 3.0 percent, double that for the nation. Detroit-Warren-Livonia was the only area to record a decrease in employment, down 0.2 percent. (See chart 3 and table 2.)

Chart 3. Over-the-year percent change in employment, United States and 12 largest metropolitan areas, February 2014

Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana added the largest number of jobs, 117,100, followed by New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island at 112,400. Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown each had job increases over 75,000. Philadelphia and Washington-Arlington-Alexandria were the only areas to gain less than 10,000 jobs over the year. Detroit lost 4,200 jobs since February 2013.

Professional and business services and trade, transportation, and utilities registered the largest over-the-year employment gains in five metropolitan areas each. Manufacturing and education and health services led employment gains in one area each.

Over the year, government recorded the largest loss of jobs in four areas—Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, New York, and Philadelphia. Manufacturing recorded the largest job losses in three other areas—Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, Dallas, and Los Angeles. In Houston and San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, no supersector lost more than 1,000 jobs, and Miami was the only metropolitan area that had no annual job losses for any supersector.

Changes to Current Employment Statistics Data

Effective with the release of January 2014 data, nonfarm payroll estimates for all states, metropolitan areas, and metropolitan divisions were revised to reflect 2013 benchmark levels. For more information on benchmark procedures, see www.bls.gov/sae/benchmark2014.pdf.

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 survey and administrative data 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/.

Additional information

More complete information on the technical procedures used to develop these estimates and additional data appear in Employment and Earnings, which is available online at www.bls.gov/opub/ee/home.htm. Industry employment data for states and metropolitan areas from the Current Employment Statistics program are also available in the above mentioned news releases and from the Internet at www.bls.gov/sae/.
