PENNSYLVANIA'S NONFARM JOBS CLIMB IN SEPTEMBER

 /ADVANCE/ HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania's nonagricultural wage and salary job total rose 17,700 in September to 5.09 million, state Department of Labor and Industry analysts reported today.
 Although this was smaller than the usual September increase, it followed job losses of 49,800 in July and 6,600 in August. While still below the June 1993 peak of 5.13 million, the nonfarm jobs total was 1,700 higher than the September 1992 level.
 The department's job count excludes farm workers, unpaid family workers and the self-employed. It also excludes those jobs that are involved in labor-management disputes.
 Seasonal gains were focused in the service-producing industries, where jobs climbed 22,000 to 3.93 million. The reopening of school brought expected job increases in educational services, state and local government and transportation and accounted for declines in various retail trade industries. Jobs in business services continued their growth trend, increasing 3,000 to 216,800. Compared to September 1992, service-producing jobs were up by 30,600.
 Jobs among the goods-producing industries dropped 4,300 to 1.16 million. These losses were led by the post-summer slowing of jobs in construction. Jobs in the manufacturing industries fell by 1,400 to 929,200. Both durable and nondurable goods contributed to the job decline. Since September 1992, goods-producing jobs have fallen by 28,900.
 Among Pennsylvania's 15 major labor market areas, 12 reported job gains in September. The largest increases were posted in the Pittsburgh Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA), up by 8,900 and the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), up 5,300. Three areas experienced job declines: the Harrisburg-Lebanon- Carlisle MSA, down by 1,100; the Williamsport MSA, down 500; and the Altoona MSA, down 200.
