ADP Report Sees 216,000 Private Jobs Added in February

The Advanced Data Processing estimate of private sector job growth is an interesting leading indicator that comes out the same week as the monthly BLS employment situation report. This morning it came in at a forecast of 216,000 new private sector jobs which would be a good-but-not-great number if replicated by the BLS on Friday.
