The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the May employment report today, which includes data on how many jobs large sectors added and lost last month. The release also includes the most recent data on smaller portions of the job market, which includes architecture, landscape architecture, and engineering and drafting services. These numbers are released one month later than the larger sectors.
The overall architecture and engineering sector added 4,500 jobs in May, nearly double what the sector added in April.
Architecture lost 100 jobs in April, the same loss experienced in March and the second straight month of losses for the industry.
