(RTTNews) - First-time claims for U.S. unemployment benefits dropped by much more than expected in the week ended September 7th, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Thursday.

The report said initial jobless claims fell to 204,000, a decrease of 15,000 from the previous week's revised level of 219,000.

Economists had expected jobless claims to edge down to 215,000 from the 217,000 originally reported for the previous week.
