The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported the U.S. economy created 304,000 jobs in January, nearly doubling the consensus forecast. The consensus called for 158,000, ranging from 140,000 to 183,000.
The unemployment rate edged up to 4.0%, as more public sector workers entered the private sector.
The labor force participation rate, at 63.2%, and the employment-population ratio, at 60.7%, are up by 0.5 percentage point over the year.
Construction employment added 52,000 new jobs in January, including increases in both nonresidential (+19,000) and residential (+15,000). Employment also rose in heavy and civil engineering construction (+10,000) and residential building (+9,000).
