The unemployment forecast for December 2022:
It is expected that the unemployment in December 2022 will not change considerably from November and be between 3,2% and 3,4%.
In mid-May The Directorate of Labour adopted a new computer system for The Unemployment Insurance Fund. When these changes were made, data from an older database was transferred to a new database and its construction is considerably different from the older one. As all statistics are still being adapted to the new system, the data in the report must be interpreted as tentative.
It has now become apparent that the number of unemployed is too low in the statistics from June to October 2022.
