Analysts had predicted a job creation pace of 184,000 after a revised 197,000 jobs in February.
As known, this report is carefully watched as it provides clues about the health of the labor market ahead of Friday’s non-farm payrolls figures.
The government NFP may show the U.S. created 175,000 jobs last month, while the unemployment rate stood at 3.7 percent.
