Unemployment down to 10.3 pct. in H1 2008

The number of people without jobs in Slovakia decreased in the first half of this year by 7.2 percent year-on-year to 275,700. The Statistics Office stated that the average unemployment rate fell by 1 percentage point to 10.3 percent. In Q1 alone, the number of unemployed declined 7 percent year-on-year to 270,800 and the average joblessness rate for this period declined by 1 percentage point to 10.1 percent. The Statistics Office ascribed the favourable development chiefly to the drop in the number of persons with unidentified last jobs by 4,200 and a last job in industry by 3,500. SITA
