The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment revised payroll job estimates for the first quarter of 2015, with figures for March increasing by 17,600 jobs, according to information from the agency.
The jobs figures were also revised upward for the other two months of the first quarter of 2015: eight-tenths of a percent for January and seven-tenths of a percent for February, the department said.
The changes are based on employer reports filed with the Department of Labor and Employment, which include a count of workers at each business establishment in Colorado.
Other key findings from the report:
– Professional and business services, trade, transportation and utilities, other services, government and information.
– Industries that are expected to see a downward revision to jobs estimates are construction, mining and logging, education and health services, and leisure and hospitality.
– Denver will see the largest upward revision to jobs estimates in the first quarter of 2015, but estimates for Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Boulder might also be revised upward.
– Job counts for Grand Junction, Greeley and Pueblo might be revised down.
