Economic agenda: Friday, March 4, 2011

By Washington Post editors

At 8:30 a.m. -- The Labor Department releases the unemployment report for February. This report should give a sense of how much January's muddled report was a result of bad weather. Analysts expect a booming 196,000 net new jobs in February after only 36,000 in January. The unemployment rate is expected to edge up to 9.1 percent after a shockingly steep decline to 9 percent in January.

At 10 a.m. -- The Commerce Department releases factory orders data for January.
