Brazil adds net 313,564 formal jobs in September - economy ministry

BRASILIA, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's economy added a net 313,564 formal jobs in September, economy ministry figures showed on Thursday, the third month in a row of job gains and far more than the 212,870 forecast in a Reuters poll of economists.

It reduces the net number of formal job losses in the first nine months of the year to 558,597, the figures showed. (Reporting by Jamie McGeeverd; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
