September 29, 2011

Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. economy probably created more jobs in the year ended March 2011 than currently estimated, the Labor Department said today in preliminary projections.

The number of jobs added to payrolls will probably be increased by 192,000 from the current estimate of 1.32 million, the Labor Department said on its Web site.

The annual benchmark revisions to payrolls will be issued on Feb. 3. The Labor Department uses records from state jobless benefit taxes to benchmark its employment survey estimates.
