NEW YORK, Oct 30 (Reuters) - U.S. private-sector employers added 130,000 jobs in October, lower than economists' expectations for the month, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Wednesday.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP National Employment Report would show a gain of 150,000 jobs. September's private payrolls gains were revised to 145,000 from the previously reported 166,000.

The report is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics.
