Floridas Nonagricultural Employment by Industry (Seasonally Adjusted)

The number of jobs in Florida was 7,328,700 in March 2012, up 89,800 jobs compared to a year ago. March
was the 20th consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for three years. The
industry gaining the most jobs was trade, transportation, and utilities (+30,400 jobs, +2.1 percent).

Other industries gaining jobs included professional and business services (+26,300 jobs, +2.5 percent);
private education and health services (+24,800 jobs, +2.3 percent); leisure and hospitality (+23,300 jobs,
+2.5 percent); financial activities (+5,800 jobs, +1.2 percent); manufacturing (+3,300 jobs, +1.1 percent); and
other services (2,200 jobs, +0.7 percent).

These industry job gains were partially due to increases in food and beverage stores; employment services;
ambulatory health care services; food services and drinking places; real estate; fabricated metal product
manufacturing; and personal and laundry services.

Industries losing jobs over the year included construction (-13,500 jobs, -4.0 percent), total government
(-12,000 jobs, -1.1 percent), and information (-700 jobs, -0.5 percent).

These industry job losses were partially due to losses in specialty trade contractors, state government, and
telecommunications.
Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In March 2012, Monroe County (5.1 percent) had the states lowest unemployment rate, followed by Walton
County (5.7 percent); Okaloosa County (6.1 percent); and Alachua, Franklin, and Leon counties (6.6 percent
each). Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions
of government employment.

Flagler County had the highest unemployment rate (12.2 percent) in Florida in March 2012, followed by
Hernando County (11.3 percent), St. Lucie County (10.9 percent), Hendry County (10.8 percent), and
Putnam County (10.6 percent). Over-the-year job losses in wholesale trade and long-term job losses in
construction contributed to Flagler Countys high unemployment rate. There were 10 Florida counties with
double-digit unemployment rates in March, down from 18 in February.
Area Nonagricultural Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Eleven metro areas of the 22 in the state had over-the-year job gains in March 2012. The areas with the
largest gains were Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall (+23,400 jobs, +2.3 percent), Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater (+20,200 jobs, +1.8 percent), and Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford (+8,600 jobs, +0.9 percent).

Of the metro areas with job declines, the largest losses were in Port St. Lucie (-2,700 jobs, -2.2 percent),
Pensacola-Ferry Pass-Brent (-2,700 jobs, -1.7 percent), and Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach
(-2,100 jobs, -1.3 percent).
Note: These 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 Unemployment Compensation tax records and other data.
New 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 on May 18, 2012, at 10:00 A.M.
