Paychex - IHS Small Business Jobs Index Shows Small Businesses Gaining Steam in February
The Paychex | IHS Small Business Jobs Index grew 0.19 percent in February to 100.84. Advancing for the second consecutive month, small business employment regained the steam lost during the fall and early winter and is again growing near the same pace recorded at the end of summer 2014. Year over year, however, the national index declined 0.31 percent. The West North Central region continues to be the top-performing regional index. Despite the largest decline from January to February, 0.68 percent, Indiana remains the top-ranked state index. Dallas, meanwhile, posted its fifth consecutive month in the top spot among metro areas.
