Highlights
ADP estimates that May private payrolls rose 133,000 vs its revised rise of 113,000 for April.

Consensus Outlook
ADP private payroll employment for April was estimated to rise by only 119,000 in what would be significant monthly slowing versus a revised 201,000 in March. The later released BLS figure for April private payrolls was a 130,000 gain.

Definition
The national employment report from Automated Data Processing Inc. is computed from ADP records that represent approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients and approximately 23 million U.S. employees working in all private industrial sectors. ADP contracted with Moody’s Analytics to compute a monthly report that would ultimately help to predict monthly nonfarm payrolls from the Bureau of Labor Statistic's employment situation. The ADP report only covers private (excluding government) payrolls.  Why Investors Care
