The following charts show job growth by sector for the previous month. For each sector, last month’s job gains are compared with average monthly gains over the last quarter (the last three months) and average monthly gains over the past year (the last 12 months). This allows readers to see how job growth over the past month compares with other periods in the recent past. All data is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
