U.S. employers added 157,000 jobs in January, and hiring was much stronger at the end of 2012 than previously thought, providing reassurance that the job market held steady even as economic growth stalled.

The Labor Department's annual revisions showed bigger job gains in most months last year. Employers added 335,000 more jobs in 2012 than previously estimated. Overall, job gains averaged about 180,000 jobs per month last year, compared to the earlier estimate of 153,000.

Here are how the revisions look for each month:
