Slovak unemployment highest in EU in September

A survey by Eurostat, the European Union's Statistical Office, shows that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in Slovakia remained unchanged in September from August at 11.1 percent. This put Slovakia at the top of the list among EU countries.

Poland, which until recently had usually posted the highest unemployment rate, put even more distance between itself and Slovakia, decreasing its rate to 8.8 percent in September from 9.1 percent in August. SITA
