WASHINGTON (AP) - Economists predict that when the government releases the latest unemployment report this morning, it'll show that some 170,000 jobs were added in January and that the unemployment rate remained at 6.7 percent.

That would mark a significant improvement from December's gain of just 74,000 jobs.

But today's report may be a tough one to interpret.

The numbers could be skewed partly by revisions to last year's job growth and U.S. population figures and a cutoff of extended unemployment benefits in December.
