Still comparing to February 2004, the result, according to the IBGE was influenced by the admissions verified in 11 of the 14 places researched and in 13 of 18 segments evaluated.


The states of São Paulo (3%) and Minas Gerais (4.9%), both in the southeastern region of Brazil, were the ones responsible for the main positive impacts.

In the state of Minas Gerais, on the other hand, 15 segments increased their employment rate, where the most expressive ones were metal products (33.4%) and electronic materials and communications equipments (17.0%).


The main negative pressures came from the industries in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul (-2.7%), due to significant drop in the shoe and leather sectors (-15.0%), and Pernambuco (-2.5%), state in the northeast of Brazil, due to the employment reduction in the foods and beverages segment (-12.7%).


In relation to the payroll in the industrial sector, all February indicators show positive rates in their main comparisons.

The number of hours paid to workers increased in 1.4% in February in comparison to January, and in relation to February 2004 the increase was of 1.8%, due to, mainly, the increase in 11 of the 14 places, and in 9 of the 18 segments researched.
