The number of employees on non-farm payrolls for the month of April in the Tucson metropolitan statistical area was 389,400, a 1.6 percent increase over the same period last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Last April, Tucson reported 383,200 workers on non-farm payrolls.

Statistics were compiled from reports from the civilian labor force and unemployment data, both of which heavily relied on household surveys. The data is not seasonally adjusted.
