NLC's quarterly analysis of the jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with a specific focus on local government employment.

April 2016
Local governments are on a hiring spree, at least according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. City and county governments added 12,800 jobs in March. A total of 41,900 jobs have been added in the first quarter of 2016. These data are a welcomed sign of a local recovery that is finally taking hold.
