Paychex is pleased to announce the introduction of Paychex | IHS Small Business Jobs Index on April 1. The Paychex | IHS Small Business Jobs Index analyzes same-store year-over-year worker count changes to identify and track small business employment trends using real small business payroll data from the Paychex client base. The index is based on aggregated data from approximately 350,000 small businesses with fewer than 50 workers across the United States, one of the largest sample sizes of any small business index or report in the country, and provides timely, accurate insight into national, regional, state, and metro employment activity. The new, monthly index from Paychex, Inc. (NASDAQ: PAYX), a leading provider of payroll, human resource, and benefits outsourcing solutions for small-to medium-sized businesses, and IHS, Inc. (NYSE: IHS), a leading global source of critical information and insight, launched today and provides insight into the state of small business employment in the U.S.

For the past 40 years, Paychex has been the leading small business payroll provider. They reduce the complexity and risk of running your own payroll, while helping to ensure greater accuracy with up-to-date tax rates and regulatory information.  For more information about Paychex, please contact Joan Kurtenbach at (402) 850-5384, or  You may also visit them at
