Creeping employment statistics

For what it is worth: highest wage and salary employment in the Pittsburgh region for a November ever.  3rd highest employment count for any month of the year ever.

as an addendum, it might be worth noting that if you look at the same data and do the division, manufacturing employment is now 7.63% of the total nonfarm wage and salary employment in the Pittsburgh region; a new all time low.

And it looks like the October figure was revised upward by 1,300.

Continued strong year-over-year construction numbers, which I find interesting.

Is manufacturing declining as an absolute number as well?

Manufacturing employment has been positive year-over-year recently, but is still well short of where it was pre-recession--and that in turn was down from earlier in the decade.

If I had to guess, I'd guess there may still be some rebound in manufacturing, but after that it will return to a slow downward trend. Note this is manufacturing employment only--manufacturing output could be growing at the same time thanks to productivity gains.
