Here is the promised update to the sector-by-sector job growth chart. The relative growth didn’t change much in March. Government employment edged out professional services for the number two spot, and retail trade recovered a bit to make a better showing than financial services (the two were tied last month.)

While the compensation shifted a bit, March’s overall annual employment gain was exactly what it was in February: an additional 8,600 jobs.
