Floridas Nonagricultural Employment by Industry (Seasonally Adjusted)

The number of jobs in Florida was 7,645,000 in December 2013, up 192,900 jobs compared to a year ago.
December 2013 was the 41st 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 (+60,300 jobs, +3.9 percent).

Other industries gaining jobs included professional and business services (+37,400 jobs, +3.5 percent); construction
(+28,800 jobs, +8.4 percent); leisure and hospitality (+24,500 jobs, +2.4 percent); private education and health
services (+16,500 jobs, +1.5 percent); financial activities (+12,400 jobs, +2.5 percent); other services (+5,200 jobs,
+1.7 percent); information (+5,000 jobs, +3.8 percent); and manufacturing (+4,400 jobs, +1.4 percent).

These industry job gains were partially due to increases in food and beverage stores; employment services;
specialty trade contractors; food services and drinking places; ambulatory health care services; real estate; personal
and laundry services; publishing industries, except internet; and fabricated metal product manufacturing.

Total government (-1,700 jobs, -0.2 percent) was the only major industry losing jobs over the year, with both federal
and state government contributing to the loss.
Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In December 2013, Monroe County had the states lowest unemployment rate (3.5 percent), followed by Walton
County (4.0 percent); Okaloosa County (4.4 percent); and Alachua and St. Johns counties (4.7 percent each). Many
of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government
employment.

Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate (10.2 percent) in Florida in December 2013, followed by Flagler
County (8.8 percent), Hamilton County (8.4 percent), Madison County (8.2 percent), and Putnam County (8.1
percent). Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate in the state in December, mainly due to long-term job
losses in government employment. Hendry was the only county in Florida with double-digit unemployment since
September.
Area Nonagricultural Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Twenty of the 22 metro areas in the state had over-the-year job gains in December 2013. The areas with the largest
gains were Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater (+35,400 jobs, +3.0 percent), Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford (+32,300
jobs, +3.1 percent), and Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall (+22,900 jobs, +2.2 percent).

The two metro areas that lost jobs over the year were Palm Coast (-600 jobs, -3.0 percent) and Panama City-Lynn
Haven-Panama City Beach (-600 jobs, -0.9 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:
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.

The next Florida Employment and Unemployment release will be March 17, 2014, at 10:00 A.M.
