Mar 7, 2014 — There were 175,000 jobs added to payrolls last month. That's about 25,000 more than economists forecast. The unemployment rate, though, edged up to 6.7 percent from 6.6 percent in January.

Oct 22, 2013 — Though only 148,000 more people were on employers' payrolls, the unemployment rate still dipped to 7.2 percent from 7.3 percent a month earlier. The report, which was delayed more than two weeks because of the partial government shutdown, is the latest look at how the economy is faring.

May 3, 2013 — The jobs report for April showed stronger job creation and a four-year low in the unemployment rate, sending stocks soaring. But the monthly numbers, while encouraging, are bound to be revised. That suggests that perhaps we're paying too much attention to them.

Comments |
May 3, 2013 — April job growth and unemployment figures are coming Friday morning. Economists expect to hear that employers added about 150,000 jobs to their payrolls and that the jobless rate stayed at 7.6 percent. But they worry about another negative surprise.
