Philadelphia Area Employment — August 2022

Total nonfarm employment for the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD, metropolitan area increased by 122,800 over the year in August, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. (See chart 1 and table 1.) Regional Commissioner Alexandra Hall Bovee noted that the local rate of job gain, 4.3 percent, compared to the 3.8-percent national gain. (All data in this release are not seasonally adjusted; accordingly, over-the-year analysis is used throughout.)   

Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD, is made up of four metropolitan divisions—separately identifiable employment centers within the greater metropolitan area. Employment increased over the year in all four divisions. Montgomery County-Bucks County-Chester County, PA, with 37 percent of the metropolitan area’s total nonfarm employment, added 35,000 jobs over the year. Philadelphia, PA, which accounted for 32 percent of the area’s employment, gained 37,300 jobs since August 2021. Camden, NJ, with 19 percent of area employment, gained 39,700 jobs, and Wilmington, DE-MD-NJ, with the remaining 12 percent of the area’s employment, added 10,800 jobs.

Industry employment

In Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD, professional and business services had the largest gain (+30,300) among the metropolitan area’s private-industry supersectors. (See chart 2.) The 6.4-percent gain in the metropolitan area’s professional and business services supersector compared to the 5.0-percent gain on a national level.

Trade, transportation, and utilities rose by 27,500 jobs over the year in the metropolitan area. The Camden, NJ, division gained 12,300 jobs, or 45 percent of the metropolitan area’s employment increase in this industry. The metropolitan area had a 5.3-percent increase compared to the 3.6-percent gain for the nation.

Education and health services added 23,800 jobs. Most of the employment gain within this supersector was concentrated in the health care and social assistance sector (+21,300). The supersector’s gain within the metropolitan area was 3.8 percent, compared to a 3.3-percent increase on a national level.

Employment in leisure and hospitality was up 22,600 over the year. Within this supersector, accommodation and food services accounted for a gain of 14,400 jobs. The metropolitan area had a 9.1-percent increase compared to the 8.4-percent gain for the nation.

Twelve largest metropolitan areas

Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD, was 1 of the nation’s 12 largest metropolitan statistical areas in August 2022. All 12 areas gained jobs over the year. New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA, had the largest increase (+497,800). Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV, had the smallest increase (+73,800) among the largest areas, followed by Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ (+87,100). (See table 2 and chart 3.)

Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX, had a 6.7-percent rate of job gain, followed by Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, TX (+6.2 percent).

The Metropolitan Area Employment and Unemployment release for September 2022 is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. (ET).

2022 Preliminary Benchmark Revision to Establishment Survey Data

Each year, Current Employment Statistics (CES) estimates are benchmarked to comprehensive counts of employment from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW). These counts are derived from state unemployment insurance (UI) tax records that nearly all employers are required to file. As part of the benchmark process for benchmark year 2022, census-derived employment counts replace CES payroll employment estimates for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and about 450 metropolitan areas and divisions for the period from April 2021 to September 2022.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released first-quarter 2022 data from the QCEW on August 24, 2022. Preliminary benchmark revisions for March 2022 for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and selected metropolitan areas at the total nonfarm level are available on the CES State and Area homepage at www.bls.gov/sae. The final benchmark revision for all state and metropolitan area series will be issued with the publication of the January 2023 State Employment and Unemployment news release in March 2023.


Technical Note

This release presents nonfarm payroll employment estimates from the CES program. The CES survey is a Federal-State cooperative endeavor between State employment security agencies and the U.S. 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 2017 version of the North American Industry Classification System.

Method of estimation. CES State and Area employment data are produced using several estimation procedures. Where possible these data are produced using a "weighted link relative" estimation technique in which a ratio of current-month weighted employment to that of the previous-month weighted employment is computed from a sample of establishments reporting for both months. The estimates of employment for the current month are then obtained by multiplying these ratios by the previous month's employment estimates. The weighted link relative technique is utilized for data series where the sample size meets certain statistical criteria. For some employment series, the estimates are produced with a model that uses direct sample estimates (described above) combined with other regressors to decrease volatility in estimation.

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. Information on recent benchmark revisions is available online at www.bls.gov/web/laus/bmrk_article.htm.

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 also are 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 specific estimation processes used. The sums of individual items may not always equal totals shown in the same tables due to rounding.

Employment estimates. Changes in metropolitan area nonfarm payroll employment are cited in the analysis of this release only if they have been determined to be statistically significant at the 90-percent confidence level. Measures of sampling error for the total nonfarm employment series are available for metropolitan areas and metropolitan divisions at www.bls.gov/web/laus/790stderr.htm.

Area definitions. The substate area data published in this news release reflect the delineations issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget on April 10, 2018. The 12 metropolitan areas discussed in this release are the metropolitan areas with the largest population according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD Metropolitan Statistical Area includes Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania; Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Salem Counties in New Jersey; New Castle County in Delaware; and Cecil County in Maryland.

  • The Camden, NJ Metropolitan Division includes Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey.
  • The Philadelphia, PA Metropolitan Division includes Delaware and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania.
  • The Montgomery County-Bucks County-Chester County, PA Metropolitan Division includes Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania.
  • The Wilmington, DE-MD-NJ Metropolitan Division includes New Castle County in Delaware, Cecil County in Maryland, and Salem County in New Jersey.
