The US economy added 215,000 jobs in March, a little less than it did in February when 242,000 jobs were created.

The unemployment rate has risen to 5% from 4.9%, which was an eight-year low. The Labor Department said more Americans were finding jobs, which suggested a sign of confidence in the US economy.

The increase could allow a cautious Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually this year. The US is continuing to create jobs, despite a global economic slowdown and cheap oil prices which have hit the energy sector. The gains were in the service sectors, especially retail, health and education and leisure and hospitality. There were also new jobs in government and construction.
