"Small non-agricultural" refers to the private sector non-agricultural data (Nonfarm private sector employment) released before the US Department of Labor released the non-agricultural population ("non-agricultural") data. The data is released by Automatic Data Processing (American Automatic Data Processing Corporation, ADP), and the number of employees released is relatively authoritative.

The ADP National Employment Report is sponsored by ADP, and Macroeconomic Advisers is responsible for the development and maintenance. This report is collected from approximately 500,000 anonymous American companies and is a reflection of the employment situation in the United States. In the first six months of 2008, samples were taken from approximately 399,000 companies in the private sector in the United States, covering nearly 24 million U.S. employees. Employment data is a leading indicator of consumer spending and accounts for the majority of overall economic activity. Two days before the official non-agricultural employment data released by the Ministry of Labor, it is regarded as a leading indicator of non-agricultural data.

Non-agricultural data usually refers to the non-agricultural employment rate in the United States. The number of non-agricultural employment is announced together with the unemployment rate (Unemployment). The publication time is usually the first Friday of each month, Beijing time (winter time: November-March) 21: 30, (daylight saving time: April-October) 20:30. Non-agricultural data objectively reflects the rise and fall of the US economy.

Small non-agricultural data are announced once a month, usually two days before the non-agricultural data (that is, the first Wednesday of each month). Specifically, summer time is generally at 20:15 on the first Wednesday of each month. 21:15) announced. However, there are also delays. The small non-farm farmers in July this year were affected by the US Independence Day holiday at the beginning of the week. The small non-farm ADP data that was routinely released on Wednesday was released one day later. Similarly, this month’s announcement of the US December ADP employment numbers originally scheduled to be announced at 21:15 Beijing time on Wednesday (January 3) was postponed to 21:15 Beijing time on Thursday (January 4) due to the New Year holiday.

There are also special cases for non-agricultural data. Generally, US non-agricultural employment data will be released on the Friday evening of the first week of each month. However, there are special circumstances. For example (Non-agricultural data for September 2013) the United States has encountered the first government in nearly 17 years. Due to the suspension situation, a number of economic data, including non-agricultural employment data for September, were not released on time, and the release was postponed to the evening of October 22.

The expected median value of economics surveyed by foreign media shows that the number of ADP employment in the United States is expected to increase by 190,000 in December, and it was also an increase of 190,000 last month.
