Despite the government shutdown last month, the latest employment figures show the economy added 204,000 jobs in October, an increase of 56,000 month over month, while the unemployment rate rose to 7.3 percent.
Economists expected the numbers to increase by 120,000.
With an uptick in the unemployment rate, the labor-force participation rate, a measure of both people who are working and those who are actively looking fell by 40 basis points to 62.8 percent, it's lowest level in more than three decades. The 30-year average stands at around 65.8 percent.
At the same time, the employment-population ratio, which measures the percentage of adults over 16 who have a job also decreased by 30 basis points to 58.3, the lowest it's been since July 2011.
