Private-sector employers added 209,000 jobs from February to March after seasonal adjustments, according to the most latest ADP National Employment Report, created by Automatic Data Processing Inc. in partnership with Macroeconomic Advisers.

In previous months, estimated gains were revised higher. The gain from December to January was revised higher by 9,000 to 182,000, and the gain from January to February was revised higher by 14,000 to 230,000.

"During the first quarter of this year, monthly gains in employment shown in The ADP National Employment Report averaged 207,000 jobs compared to 156,000 per month over all of 2011," says Carlos Rodriguez, president and CEO of ADP. "This is a positive development, and I would hope that job growth will be even more robust for the remainder of the year."
