NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. private employers added 166,000 jobs in September, lower than economists' expectations for the month, 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 180,000 jobs. August's private payrolls gains were revised to 159,000 from the previously reported 176,000.

The report is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics.
