Great Graphic: US Jobs by Region and State

This Great Graphic was created by ADP based on their surveys of the private sector.  There are only three US states that have not grown jobs over the past six month, Connecticut, Arizona and Utah.

The relatively heavier populated states should see larger swings in their numbers.  So it is not surprising that California and Texas lead in job creation over the past six months.  What stands out is that Ohio edged out New York, which is the third largest state. This may speak to the recovery of the manufacturing sector in general, and autos in particular.   Also Illinois, the fifth largest state created fewer jobs than several smaller states, like North Carolina, Washington, Colorado, and Vermont.
