Retail, construction and health care went on a hiring spree latest month. The three sectors combined accounted for nearly two-thirds of total U. S. work gains in March.

Retailers added about 48.000 jobs, thanks to openings at common merchandise stores, health and personal care outlets and auto dealerships.

Hiring at construction companies was also strong, expanding by 37.000 jobs. The leap was fueled by residence construction companies and firms involved in heavy and civil engineering projects.

Health care continued to add jobs at a solid pace, with new jobs at doctor'south offices, hospitals and residence health care services.

Among the sectors that shed jobs were manufacturing and mining. Manufacturing has been hit by slower growth overseas, lost 29.000 jobs in March. Mining, which includes the oil and gas drilling sector, lost more than twelve.000 jobs. Low oil prices have cost that industry 185.000 jobs since September 2014.

Overall, U. S. employers added 215.000 jobs in March, extending their long stretch of steady hiring. The unemployment rate edged up to 5.0 % from 4.9 percent.
