Construction employment increased in 30 states between January and February, while 19 states added construction jobs during the past 12 months, the Associated General Contractors of America reported in an analysis of state employment data released by the Labor Department. Association officials cautioned, however, that it was too early to tell whether the relatively positive report reflects improving economic conditions or the benefit of warmer weather much of the country experienced in February.

The District of Columbia had the largest one-month percentage increase in employment (5.8 percent, 600 jobs), followed by Connecticut (4.2 percent, 2,100 jobs); Georgia (3.7 percent, 5,000 jobs); and Oregon (2.9 percent, 2,000 jobs). California (15,500 jobs, 2.7 percent) added the most construction jobs between January and February, followed by Georgia; North Carolina (4,500 jobs, 2.7 percent); and Florida (4,400 jobs, 1.3 percent).
