The job-to-applicant ratio was 1.49, well shy of expectations for 1.57 - which again would have been steady from a month earlier.

The number of employed persons in January was 66.87 million, an increase of 590,000 on year. The number of unemployed persons in January was 1.59 million, a decrease of 70,000 on year.
