Unemployment Rates

ANNUAL RATE OF UNEMPLOYMENT CHANGE (%)

This unemployment rate is the measure of the numbers of unemployed people as a percentage of the labour force. The labour force is defined as the total number of unemployed people plus those in employment. The unemployed are people of working age who are without work, are available for work, and have taken specific steps to find work. The unemployment rate is more internationally comparable than estimates based on national definitions of unemployment.
