Wis. adds 20,500 jobs over 12-month period

The latest jobs numbers released by Gov. Scott Walker's administration shows slowed growth over the 12-month period that ended in September.

Walker's Department of Workforce Development released the latest numbers Friday that show the addition of 20,481 jobs during that time. That's slower growth than the previous 12-month period through last June when 35,381 private-sector jobs were created.

The data is based on a census of 96 percent of Wisconsin businesses. Walker's administration has been releasing the numbers in advance of them being published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Because they are released early, Wisconsin's performance can't be compared to other states. In the previous quarter, Wisconsin ranked 42nd in job creation.
