Nonfarm payroll employment increased by 312,000 in December, and the unemployment rate rose to 3.9 percent.

Job growth totaled 2.6 million in 2018, compared with a gain of 2.2 million jobs in 2017.

Incorporating revisions for October and November, which increased payrolls by 58,000, monthly job gains averaged 254,000 over the past 3 months.
