The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, suggesting a sharp slowdown in job growth last month was probably an aberration.Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 36,000 to a seasonally adjusted 280,000 for the week ending Sept. 13, the lowest level since July.The dollar hit a more-than six-year high against the yen, while U.S. Treasury price declines widened after the claims data.July's starts were revised to show a 1.12 million-unit rate, the highest level since November 2007, instead of the previously reported a 1.09 million-unit rate.Claims fell 19,000 between the August and September survey periods.The unemployment rate for people receiving jobless benefits fell to 1.8 percent, the lowest level since November 2006, from 1.9 percent in the prior week.
