(Reuters) - U.S. private employers added 169,000 jobs last month, the fewest since January 2014 and far below economists' expectations, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Wednesday.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP National Employment Report would show a gain of 200,000 jobs.

March's private payrolls were revised down to an increase of 175,000 jobs from the previously reported 189,000.
