TALLAHASSEE, FL -

Florida continues to add jobs according to a new employment survey. 

Payroll provider ADP reported Wednesday that the state added nearly 13,000 private sector jobs during the month of June. ADP's survey is separate from the one that is conducted by government agencies.

ADP stated that Florida's job growth was among the highest in the nation behind California, Texas and New York. The survey showed that the growth was largely in service jobs.

The results could bode well for another drop in the state's unemployment rate. State officials will announce the new rate next week.

The state's May unemployment rate was 7.1 percent.

State economists, however, recently concluded one reason Florida's jobless numbers have dropped is that people are leaving the labor force or delaying looking for a job.
