Philadelphia Area Employment – May 2017

Local Rate of Employment Growth Close to the National Average

Total nonfarm employment for the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, Pa.-N.J.-Del.-Md. Metropolitan Statistical Area stood at 2,922,400 in May 2017, up 46,100, or 1.6 percent, over the year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. During the same period, the national job count increased 1.5 percent. Sheila Watkins, the Bureau’s regional commissioner, noted that the Philadelphia area has not had an over-the-year employment decline in nearly seven years. (See chart 1 and table 1; the Technical Note at the end of this release contains metropolitan area definitions. All data in this release are not seasonally adjusted; accordingly, over-the-year analysis is used throughout.)

The Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, Pa.-N.J.-Del.-Md. Metropolitan Statistical Area is made up of four metropolitan divisions¾separately identifiable employment centers within the greater metropolitan area. All four divisions saw employment increases over the year. The Philadelphia Metropolitan Division, with 32 percent of the area’s employment, gained 17,500 jobs since last May. The Montgomery County-Bucks County-Chester County Metropolitan Division, with 37 percent of the area’s employment, added 15,400 jobs. The Camden Metropolitan Division, with 19 percent of local employment, added 10,200 jobs; the Wilmington Metropolitan Division, with the remaining 12 percent, gained 3,000 jobs over the year.

Industry employment

In the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area, education and health services had the largest employment gain from May 2016 to May 2017, adding 20,400 jobs. The Philadelphia area’s 3.3-percent growth in education and health services employment exceeded the nationwide increase of 2.3 percent. (See chart 2.) The Philadelphia division added 10,800 jobs and the Montgomery County division added 4,400 jobs in this supersector.

Professional and business services employment increased by 9,500 since last May, the second-largest gain in the Philadelphia area. The local rate of job growth, at 2.1 percent, lagged the national rate of 3.1 percent. Of the three local divisions that gained jobs in this industry, Montgomery County saw the largest increase, adding 8,300 jobs.

Two other supersectors in the Philadelphia area gained more than 3,000 jobs since last May—leisure and hospitality (4,600); and mining, logging, and construction (3,400). The 1.7-percent rate of local employment growth in leisure and hospitality was slower than the 2.1-percent nationwide increase.

Manufacturing was the only supersector in the Philadelphia area to lose jobs since last May, down 2,000. The supersector’s local employment decreased 1.1 percent over the year, while national employment rose 0.5 percent.  

Employment in the 12 largest metropolitan areas

Philadelphia was 1 of the nation’s 12 largest metropolitan statistical areas in May 2017. All 12 areas had over-the-year job growth during the period, with the rates of job growth in 8 areas exceeding the national increase of 1.5 percent. Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington had the fastest rate of job growth, 3.3 percent, followed by Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell at 3.1 percent. Chicago-Naperville-Elgin and Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim had the slowest rates of job growth, at 0.7 and 1.0 percent, respectively. (See chart 3 and table 2.)

New York-Newark-Jersey City added the largest number of jobs, 151,500, followed by Dallas (115,800) and Atlanta (81,900). Chicago had the smallest employment gain over the year, adding 34,400 jobs. Annual job gains in six metropolitan areas ranged from 48,300 to 45,000.

Over the year, education and health services added the most jobs in five areas: Boston-Cambridge-Nashua, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward. Professional and business services was the largest job producer in other five areas: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, and Washington-Arlington-Alexandria.

Manufacturing lost the most jobs over the year in four areas: Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. Atlanta and San Francisco had no annual job losses in any supersector.

Metropolitan area employment data for June 2017 are scheduled to be released on Friday, July 21, 2017, 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 2012 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/.

Area definitions. The substate area data published in this release reflect the delineations issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget on July 15, 2015. A detailed list of the geographic definitions is available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

The Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, Pa.-N.J.-Del.-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.
