Highlights
Signaling disappointment for Friday's employment report, ADP estimates that April private payrolls will rise by only 119,000 in what would be significant monthly slowing vs a revised 201,000 in March.

Recent History Of This Indicator
ADP private payroll employment for March posted a gain of 209,000. This compares to BLS estimates of 121,000 for private payrolls and 120,000 for total payrolls.

Definition
The ADP national employment report is computed from a subset of ADP records that represent approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients and approximately 23 million U.S. employees working in all private industrial sectors. ADP contracted with Moody’s Analytics to compute a monthly report that would ultimately help to predict monthly nonfarm payrolls from the Bureau of Labor Statistic's employment situation. The ADP report only covers private (excluding government) payrolls.  Why Investors Care

The new ADP employment report is aimed at improving payroll forecasts by providing information in advance of the employment report.
