The United States added 192,000 jobs in March as private employers boosted hiring, a sign of improving strength in the economy, Labor Department data showed Friday.
The jobless rate remained unchanged from February at 6.7 percent as the number of unemployed held steady at 10.5 million.
The March job growth was a shade below analysts' average estimate of 195,000 net new jobs.
But the overall picture showed stronger gains in the first quarter, despite severe winter weather, than previously estimated.
