Service-providing industries added 165,000 jobs in August, down from 176,000 in July. Gains were broad-based across industries. Among the service industries reported by the ADP National Employment Report, professional/business services added the most jobs with 50,000 over the month.

“The U.S. private sector added 176,000 jobs in August, as companies of all sizes expanded their payrolls over the previous month,” said Carlos A. Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of ADP. “The August job gains are in line with the monthly average over the last 12 months.”

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, said, “It is steady as she goes in the job market. Job gains in August were consistent with increases experienced over the past two-plus years. There is little evidence that fiscal austerity and Health Care Reform have had a significant impact on the job market.”
