U.S. private employers added 32,000 jobs in April, while revisions to previous data showed an unexpected rise in March, according to a report by payrolls processor ADP Employer Services on Wednesday.

The March figure was revised to show a gain of 19,000 -- the first increase since January 2008. The March figure was originally reported as a fall of 23,000.

For April, economists had expected the privately released ADP report to show a rise of 30,000 jobs, based on a Reuters poll of analysts.
