ADP versus BLS Payrolls

August           67,000 104,000
September         105,000 210,000
October         142,000 120,000
November         226,000 157,000
December         267,000 223,000
January         182,000 275,000
February         228,000 240,000
March         201,000 120,000 Preliminary
April         119,000

If there is something to conclude here, other than a consistent creation of jobs, then I can’t see it. The ADP report was higher than the BLS survey 4 times since last August and lower 4 times. But this is quite clear:

Total BLS payrolls in blue and total ADP in red.
