From the NYT.

The economy added 203,000 jobs in November, a bit better than expected, as the unemployment rate fell to 7 percent, the lowest in five years.
While the return of hundreds of thousands of federal employees following October’s government shutdown may have exaggerated the move in the unemployment rate for November, the continuing payroll gains suggest the economy has picked up at least a modicum of momentum very recently.
Economists surveyed by Bloomberg before the Labor Department announcement had expected an increase of 185,000 jobs, with the

unemployment rate falling by 0.1 percentage point to 7.2 percent.
