MADISON — Gov. Scott Walkerís administration is reporting that Wisconsin added more than 32,000 private sector jobs last year.

Walkerís Department of Workforce Development released the new figures on Thursday, but they canít be compared to other states until next month. Walker has been releasing the figures before they are published officially by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Critics say the stateís performance canít be adequately measured until the numbers can be compared with other states. The most current ranking, comparing jobs created between September 2011 and September 2012, showed Wisconsin was 44th in the nation.

Walker says in the first two years of his term just over 62,000 jobs have been created. He pledged to create 250,000 jobs in four years.
