The company has since revised that figure upward by 5,000, making the net loss 18,000. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which generally issues its reports two days after ADP, reported a loss of 63,000 jobs in non-farm payroll employment in February, but the BLS figures include public-sector employees.
