Florida’s Nonagricultural Employment by Industry (Seasonally Adjusted)

The number of jobs in Florida was 7,511,200 in May 2013, up 122,500 jobs compared to a year ago. May 2013 was the
th
34 consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for over three years. The industry
gaining the most jobs was trade, transportation, and utilities (+39,300 jobs, +2.6 percent).

Other industries gaining jobs included leisure and hospitality (+31,300 jobs, +3.2 percent); professional and business
services (+23,100 jobs, +2.2 percent); private education and health services (+22,200 jobs, +2.0 percent); construction
(+9,600 jobs, +2.8 percent); other services (+4,200 jobs, +1.3 percent); financial activities (+2,600 jobs, +0.5 percent);
and information (+1,300 jobs, +1.0 percent).

These industry job gains were partially due to increases in motor vehicle and parts dealers; food services and drinking
places; employment services; ambulatory health care services; construction of buildings; membership associations and
organizations; real estate; and internet service providers and data processing.

Total government (-7,700 jobs, -0.7 percent) and manufacturing (-3,400 jobs, -1.1 percent) lost jobs over the year.

These industry job losses were partially due to declines in state government and computer and electronic parts
manufacturing.

Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In May 2013, Monroe County (4.0 percent) had the state’s lowest unemployment rate, followed by Walton County
(4.1 percent), Okaloosa County (4.8 percent), Franklin County (5.2 percent), and Alachua County (5.3 percent). Many
of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government
employment. Seasonal tourism was also a contributing factor.

Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate (11.1 percent) in Florida in May 2013, followed by Flagler County
(9.5 percent); St. Lucie County (9.3 percent); Putnam County (9.2 percent); and Dixie and Miami-Dade counties (8.7
percent each). Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate in the state due to seasonal declines in agriculture
and long-term losses in state government jobs. Hendry was the only Florida county with a double-digit unemployment
rate in May.

Area Nonagricultural Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Twenty of the 22 metro areas in the state had over-the-year job gains in May 2013. The areas with the largest gains
were Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater (+33,800 jobs, +2.9 percent), Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford (+16,800, +1.6
percent), and Jacksonville (+15,500 jobs, +2.6 percent).

Only the Panama City-Lynn Haven-Panama City Beach metro area had an over-the-year job decline (-1,500 jobs, -2.0
percent). The Lakeland-Winter Haven metro area was unchanged over-the-year.
Note: The unemployment and job growth rates are estimates, which are primarily based on surveys created and mandated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics in cooperation with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
The unemployment rate is derived from Florida household surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau under contract with the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics. The job growth rate is derived from Florida employer surveys conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Both estimates are revised on a monthly basis. In addition, these estimates are benchmarked (revised) annually based on actual counts from Florida's
Reemployment Assistance tax records and other data.
Procedures mandated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics may result in more variable month-to-month changes. For further information, go to:
http://www.bls.gov/sae/cesprocs.htm

The mission of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity is to promote economic prosperity for all Floridians and businesses
through successful workforce, community, and economic development strategies. Please visit www.floridajobs.org for more
information.
The next Florida Employment and Unemployment release will be July 19, 2013, at 10:00 A.M.
