Both numbers, part of the Current Employment Statistics program, were revealed Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development and put into a national perspective on Friday by the federal government.
September and October figures were announced together because the schedule was disrupted by the federal government shutdown last month.
Wisconsin continues to trail its neighboring states in job growth since Gov. Scott Walker took office in January 2011 after a campaign in which he promised to add 250,000 new jobs in his first four-year term.
Under Walker, the state has added 88,000 jobs through October, according to the Current Employment Statistics.
In October, 6,000 of the jobs added came from the manufacturing sector and 5,000 were in the trade, transportation and utilities area.
The Current Employment Statistics figures are from a sample of a small percentage of Wisconsin employers. A more complete jobs picture comes from the federal Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, which covers about 95 percent of Wisconsin employers but is released about six months after the time covered.
