​​A sign seen when one drives into Texas, which reads: TEXAS – Private-sector employers accelerated hiring in August, adding 30,500 jobs, according to new data from payroll processor Automatic Data Processing Inc​.

That accounted for 12.9 percent of the U.S. private-sector job increase.

The ADP report is based on private payroll data in addition to government data.

According the report:

  • the professional and business services sector added 5,800 last month;
  • the oil field and construction sector added 4,600 positions; 
  • manufacturing increased jobs by 3,400; and 
  • the trade, transportation and utilities sector added 4,000 jobs.

More broadly, the services sector added 22,400 jobs, while the goods-producing sector added 8,100 jobs.

The August report does not refle​​ct the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
