MADISON, Wis. -- The latest jobs numbers showing how well Wisconsin did in creating jobs compared with other states is set to be released.

The numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will show private-sector job creation for the state and nation for the 12-month period from the end of December 2012 through the end of 2013.

In the last report released in March, Wisconsin ranked 35th in private-sector job growth.

The numbers will also provide an update on how much progress Gov. Scott Walker is making toward his 2010 campaign promise to create 250,000 private sector jobs through the end of this year.

Based on the best most recent estimates about 101,000 have been added since Walker took office, leaving him less than halfway toward the promise.
