Announcement

ADP Research Institute (ADPRI) and the Stanford Digital Economy Lab (the “Lab”) announced they will retool the ADP National Employment Report (NER) methodology to provide a more robust, high-frequency view of the labor market and trajectory of economic growth. In preparation for the changeover to the new report and methodology, ADPRI will pause issuing the current report and has targeted August 31, 2022, to reintroduce the ADP National Employment Report in collaboration with the Stanford Digital Economy Lab (the “Lab”). We look forward to providing an even more comprehensive labor market analysis and will be in touch with additional details closer to the re-launch, later this summer.  For more information on this announcement, please visit here.

In 2021, about 1 in 20 salaried, private-sector workers in the San Francisco metro area earned more than $609,000. In the San Jose metro area, the heart of Silicon Valley, the corresponding figure was $692,000. Those exceptional pay levels are part of a new set of ADP Research Institute indices that track 26 million workers across the U.S. The indices, slated for public release later this year, track wage quantiles for private-sector workers and a variety of sub-groups at the metropolitan level.  In our new research note, The Geography of Recent U.S. Wage Growth, we preview the power of the indices and what they can teach us.
