The most important companies in America’s economy have grown at a faster rate than most other sectors, according to a report released Monday by the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics.
But while the industry has continued to be the biggest driver of job growth, it is no longer the single largest driver of the nation’s economy.
The report, released by the think tank’s Center for American Progress, found that, in the latest quarter, the sector with the most growth was the automotive sector, with an estimated 4.6 million jobs added.
It also found that the sector had gained the most jobs of any other group, with the economy adding 6.3 million jobs in the first quarter.
But overall, the report found that American manufacturers were struggling to compete in the global marketplace and were losing ground to rivals in the U.-S.
The top three sectors that the report said have seen the biggest increases in jobs are auto, manufacturing and finance.
The automotive sector has grown the fastest, adding more than 3 million jobs, and the auto industry accounted for almost half of the growth in the overall economy in the last quarter.
The auto industry has added 2.3 jobs a month since the beginning of the year, which was up from 1.6 a month in the previous quarter.
Meanwhile, the manufacturing sector has seen the most gains, adding nearly 2.4 million jobs during the first four months of the current fiscal year, up from 2.2 million in the same period last year.
Finance has seen its job gains slow in recent years.
Its job growth is down slightly since the end of the last recession, and it is the second-smallest sector in the economy.
The report found the finance sector is still the most profitable sector, adding $9.7 billion to the economy in 2016, which the think tanks said is the highest rate of growth in more than a decade.
The largest employer of finance workers, in fact, is the banks that serve the financial markets, which added $4.7 trillion in the year that ended in March, according the report.
The biggest job losses in the finance industry have come in the past five years, as financial services jobs have been cut or eliminated at a rapid pace.
That has led to an increase in the number of people working in finance, according in the report, with a third of the new hires coming from the finance and insurance industry in 2016.
In 2015, more than two-thirds of new jobs in finance were in finance.
