Today, private staffing and business services firm ADP released the latest installment of its National Employment Report, indicating that the situation for private employment in the U.S. improved in January. Private employers added 192,000 jobs in the month, bringing the total employment level 1.54% above the level seen in January 2012.

Perusing the rest of the data in the ADP data set, you can see the the economy is currently showing the most growth for small- to mid-sized service providing jobs, with goods-producing jobs remaining near trough levels. Look for Friday's BLS Employment Situation Report to likely show somewhat similar trends.
