WASHINGTON â¿¿ The Treasury reports on the budget deficit for January. The deficit widened to $292 billion in the first three months of the budget year, which began Oct. 1. But earlier this month, the Congressional Budget Office projected an annual deficit of $845 billion for 2013. If correct, that would mark the first time the deficit had fallen below $1 trillion during the Obama administration. By Martin Crutsinger.

WASHINGTON â¿¿ The government reports on JOLTS -- the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey -- for December. In November, the number of available jobs ticked up to a seasonally adjusted 3.67 million. That left 3.3 people competing for each opening, more than the 2-to-1 ratio typical in a healthy economy. Companies added a modest number of jobs in January, and the government said hiring was much stronger at the end of the year than it first estimated. By Christopher S. Rugaber.
