NCCI releases Q4 2023 Quarterly Economics Briefing

29 Jan, 2024 NCCI


WHAT:This edition of the Quarterly Economics Briefing details the evolution of the labor market development in 2023 and why we remain positive about the labor market and the economy heading into 2024. 

WHO: The report is authored by Executive Director & Senior Economist Stephen Cooper, and Economists Patrick Coate and Yariv Fadlon 


  • Employers added 2.7 million jobs in 2023, a significant slowdown from 2021 and 2022’s growth but still a good gain for a "normal" labor market. 
  • Employment growth was concentrated in two private sector industry groups (education and healthcare, and leisure and hospitality) in 2023. However, this appears to reflect uneven rates of recovery from the pandemic rather than a sign of serious labor market weakness. 
  • Cumulative payroll growth in workers compensation from the onset of the pandemic through 2023 has been above the pre-pandemic trend due to elevated wage growth, despite the steep 2020 recession. Wage growth will likely continue to drive workers compensation payroll growth throughout 2024.
