Highlights
ADP sees less strength for April employment, at 204,000 for private payroll growth vs a revised 228,000 in March. Forecasters in general see even less strength than ADP, at a consensus 190,000 for Friday's report.

Consensus Outlook
ADP had been on a hot run until March employment came in much weaker than expected, not far stronger than expected as ADP forecast. The consensus for April's ADP estimate is 190,000 vs 241,000 in March.

Definition
The national employment report from Automated Data Processing Inc. is computed from ADP records that represent approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients and approximately 23 million U.S. employees working in all private industrial sectors. ADP contracted with Moody’s Analytics to compute a monthly report that would ultimately help to predict monthly nonfarm payrolls from the Bureau of Labor Statistic's employment situation. The ADP report only covers private (excluding government) payrolls.  Why Investors Care
