    Florida’s Nonagricultural Employment by Industry (Seasonally Adjusted)

•   The number of jobs in Florida was 7,507,100 in March 2013, up 141,300 jobs compared to a year ago. March 2013
               nd
    was the 32 consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for over three years. The
    industry gaining the most jobs was leisure and hospitality (+45,300 jobs, +4.6 percent).

•   Other industries gaining jobs included trade, transportation, and utilities (+42,300 jobs, +2.8 percent); professional
    and business services (+25,100, +2.4 percent); private education and health services (+24,000 jobs, +2.2 percent);
    construction (+8,500 jobs, +2.5 percent); financial activities (+4,200 jobs, +0.8 percent); and other services (+3,200
    jobs, +1.0 percent).

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

•   Industries losing jobs over the year included total government (-8,400 jobs, -0.8 percent), manufacturing (-2,700 jobs,
    -0.9 percent), and information (-300 jobs, -0.2 percent).

•   These industry job losses were partially due to declines in local government, miscellaneous durable goods
    manufacturing, and telecommunications.

    Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

•   In March 2013, Monroe County (3.8 percent) had the state’s lowest unemployment rate, followed by Walton County
    (4.3 percent), Okaloosa County (4.8 percent), Alachua County (5.1 percent), and St. Johns County (5.3 percent). Many
    of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government
    employment. Strong population growth was also a contributing factor.

•   Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate (10.0 percent) in Florida in March 2013, followed by Flagler
    County (9.5 percent), Putnam County (9.4 percent), Miami-Dade County (9.2 percent), and St. Lucie County (8.8
    percent). Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate in the state mainly due to long-term losses in state
    government jobs. Hendry County was the only county in Florida with a double-digit unemployment rate in March. In
    February, three counties had jobless rates above 10.0 percent.

    Area Nonagricultural Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

•   Nineteen of the 22 metro areas in the state had over-the-year job gains in March 2013. The areas with the largest
    gains were Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater (+35,900 jobs, +3.1 percent), Jacksonville (+16,700 jobs, +2.8 percent),
    and Ft. Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deerfield Beach (+14,500, +2.0 percent).

•   Of the three metro areas experiencing over-the-year job declines, Panama City-Lynn Haven-Panama City Beach
    (-1,200 jobs, -1.6 percent) experienced the greatest decline followed by Palm Coast (-100 jobs, -0.5 percent) and
    Punta Gorda (-100 jobs, -0.2 percent).

         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:

    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
