MADISON (AP) — New data released by Gov. Scott Walker’s administration shows private sector job growth in Wisconsin increased 1.5 percent over the 12-month period ending in June.

Walker’s Department of Workforce Development on Thursday released quarterly employment data it was submitting to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showing job growth between April and June.

The figures Walker provided show the state added 35,379 private sector jobs over the 12-month period. Government jobs increased by a little over 2,100 during the same period.

The quarterly report is based on a census of 96 percent of Wisconsin businesses. The BLS will review the data as submitted by the state and publish final numbers on Jan. 8.

The state is also slated to release monthly employment data for October on Thursday.
