PENNSYLVANIA NON-FARM JOBS UP TO 5.19 MILLION IN NOVEMBER

 PENNSYLVANIA NON-FARM JOBS UP TO 5.19 MILLION IN NOVEMBER
 /ADVANCE/ HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Non-farm jobs within Pennsylvania increased by 10,200 in November to 5.19 million, the third highest November on record, state Department of Labor and Industry analysts reported today.
 Analysts said the gain was well over the seasonal norm, but 39,100 below the all-time record set in November 1991.
 The monthly non-farm job count excludes farm workers, the self- employed, domestic workers and unpaid family workers.
 Since October, service-producing industries added 18,200 to their payrolls to reach 3.98 million in November, a new record high. In November 1990, service-producing jobs numbered 3.96 million.
 Over three-fourths of the November job gains among service-producing industries came in retail trade. Within retail trade, more than half of the increase was in general merchandise stores as additional workers were hired for the holiday season. Losses were confined to eating and drinking places and businesses tied to the automotive and construction industries.
 Government jobs, also up in November, increased by 4,600 to 712,900. Most of these new jobs were in local public schools.
 Partially offsetting these gains, jobs in the services industry dropped 2,900 from October's record level of 1.5 million. November's seasonal decline of jobs in amusement and recreational services exceeded the increase in educational services.
 Meanwhile, jobs in the goods-producing sector fell 7,500 to 1.21 million in November. This total represented 55,100 fewer jobs in goods- producing industries than one year ago.
 Since October, all three major segments within goods-producing posted job declines. A decrease of 5,700 jobs within the construction industry accounted for most of the drop, while losses of 1,000 in nondurable goods and 600 in durable goods combined for an overall drop of 1,600 jobs in manufacturing industries.
 Among Pennsylvania's 15 major labor market areas, twelve reported job gains in November. The Philadelphia Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA), up 9,700 jobs since October, had the largest month-to-month increase. Only the Erie and Johnstown Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) posted job declines.
