September 6, 2018

According to data recently released by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (EL.STAT), the number of unemployed workers decreased by 12,624 in June compared with May and the seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate fell to 19.1% from a revised 19.3% in the previous month (previously reported: 19.5%). In addition, June’s unemployment rate was below that of the same month last year (June 2017: 21.3%).
