The U.S. preliminary unemployment rate of 4.1 percent for January was unchanged from December and down from 4.8 percent a year earlier.

Although the total number of nonfarm payroll jobs continues to increase, the rate of growth is slowing, increasing 2.2 percent in 2017 compared to a recent high of 3.5 percent in 2014, according to data from the labor department.
