Economic agenda: Friday, Feb. 4, 2011

By Neil Irwin

At 8:30 a.m. -- The Labor Department is scheduled to release unemployment data for January. Forecasters expect that the report will show 140,000 net new jobs created last month, only barely enough to match population growth. The unemployment rate should edge up to 9.5 percent, from 9.4 percent.
