The US jobs report for March just landed, offering the best and latest update on the world’s largest—and at the moment, one of the healthiest—economy.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the United States created 215,000 new jobs this month—ahead of the 200,000 that Wall Street experts expected. The unemployment rate unexpectedly ticked up from 4.9% to 5.0%, as more Americans were drawn back into the labor force by the improving economy.

We’ll be collecting the best bits of analysis and insight from around the web and adding some of our own, as the online hive mind digests the report. Stick around.
