Unemployment Rate Falls to 9 Percent in January

The report offered a conflicting picture on hiring. Unemployment fell because the Labor Department's household survey determined that more than a half-million people without jobs found work. But the department conducts a separate survey of businesses, which showed the tepid job creation. The two surveys sometimes diverge.
