(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The US Labor Department reported on Friday that the economy added 157,000 jobs in January compared with a revised 196,000 jobs the previous month.

The unemployment rate was little changed at 7.9 percent, about where it has been stuck since September, according to The New York Times.

On the bright side, revised government data showed that the economy added 335,000 more jobs than originally estimated during all of 2012, including an additional 150,000 in the last quarter of the year.

That was on top of the previously reported fourth-quarter job growth of 603,000 and 2012 growth of 2.2 million.

The higher revisions, in particular, encouraged traders on Wall Street, sending the Dow Jones industrial average over the 14,000-point mark for the first time since 2007.
