Connecticut’s non-farm payroll employees increases by 0.3% since last year


Connecticut reported the number of employees on non-farm payrolls for the month of May was 1,703,700, a 0.3 percent increase over the same period last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Last May, Connecticut reported 1,699,000 workers on non-farm payrolls.

Statistics were compiled from reports from the civilian labor force and unemployment data, both of which heavily relied on household surveys. The data is not seasonally adjusted.

Employment data is gleaned from an establishment survey that measures non-farm employment, hours and earnings by industry. The data is also based on payroll jobs and such factors as where the establishments are located.
