In May 2019, the unemployment rate was 6.6%, the same value of the previous month. This value follows an increase of 0.1 percentage points (pp) from three months before and a decrease of 0.5 pp from the same month of 2018. That value corresponds also to a null revision of the provisional estimate released one month ago.
In comparison to the previous month, the unemployed population has increased by 0.5% (1.7 thousand people) and the employed population has remained practically unchanged.
The provisional unemployment rate estimate for June 2019 was 6.7% and increased by 0.1 pp from the previous month.
