Gov't reports 151,000 new jobs in January, unemployment rate falls to 4.9%; U6 remains at 9.9% 5.2.2016 Daily Kos
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics  estimated Friday that 151,000 seasonally adjusted new full- and part-time jobs were added to the economy in January. That was 158,000 new jobs created in the private sector; government jobs fell by 7,000. A consensus of experts surveyed in advance by Bloomberg said the BLS estimate would be that 188,000 new jobs had been created in January. The estimate makes January the 70th month in a row for private job growth, the 64th in a row in which new public jobs have been added. The official unemployment rate—the so-called “headline” rate that the BLS labels U3—fell to 4.9 percent.
