From March 2013 to June 2013 gross job gains from opening and expanding

private sector establishments were 7.1 million, the U.S. Bureau of

Labor Statistics reported today. Over this period, gross job losses

from closing and contracting private sector establishments were 6.5

million, an increase of 191,000 from the previous quarter. (See box

note on page 3.)


The difference between the number of gross job gains and the number of

gross job losses yielded a net employment gain of 666,000 jobs in the

private sector during the second quarter of 2013. (See table 1.)


The change in the number of jobs over time is the net result of

increases and decreases in employment that occur at all businesses

in the economy. Business Employment Dynamics (BED) statistics track

these changes in employment at private business units from the third

month of one quarter to the third month of the next. Gross job gains

are the sum of increases in employment from expansions at existing

units and the addition of new jobs at opening units. Gross job losses

are the result of contractions in employment at existing units and the

loss of jobs at closing units. The difference between the number of

gross job gains and the number of gross job losses is the net change

in employment. (See the Technical Note for more information.)

|Following normal processing procedures, annual revisions were published |


|with the release of first quarter 2013 data. These annual revisions     |

|should have included updates to the BED establishment birth and death   |


|data series, but they were not updated due to a production error. For   |


|this reason, the BED birth and death data are revised with this release.|


|These revisions cover all four quarters of 2012 for not seasonally      |


|adjusted data and the previous five years of seasonally adjusted data.  |
