US economy adds more jobs than expected in January

The US economy added a stronger-than-expected 304,000 jobs in January.
 
The figure was far in excess of economists' forecasts of 165,000.
 
However, December's jobs growth figure was revised to 222,000, down from an initial estimate of 312,000.
 
The widespread gains marked the 100th month in a row of hiring.
