In April, the number of total unemployed Americans stood at 11. 66 million, down from 11.74 million in March, said the department. Employment rose in various sectors last month, including transportation, utilities, retail trade and health care.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Reserve kept its stimulus policy in place after its policy meeting on Wednesday.
