The ADP jobs report for March says the country added 209,000 private sector jobs in March. Additionally, ADP revised higher its estimates for December, January, and February. The gain from December to January was revised up by 9,000 to 182,000, and the gain from January to February was revised up by 14,000 to 230,000. The March gains were driven largely by small business hiring and hiring in the service sector.
