and annual pay was up 7.6% according to the August ADP(R) National Employment ReportTM produced by
the ADP Research Institute(R) in collaboration with the Stanford Digital Economy Lab (“Stanford Lab”).
The jobs report and pay insights use ADP’s fine-grained anonymized and aggregated payroll data of over
25 million U.S. employees to provide a representative picture of the labor market. The report details the
current month’s total private employment change, and weekly job data from the previous month. ADP’s
pay measure uniquely captures the earnings of a cohort of almost 10 million employees over a 12-month
“Our data suggests a shift toward a more conservative pace of hiring, possibly as companies try to
decipher the economy’s conflicting signals,” said Nela Richardson, chief economist, ADP. “We could be at
an inflection point, from super-charged job gains to something more normal.”
The BLS report will be released Friday, and the consensus is for 280 thousand non-farm payroll jobs added in August.
