Unemployment in Denmark
Denmark - UnemploymentThe economy will have been hammered by lockdown measures in the first quarter, and will likely remain under siege from Covid-19 in the second quarter despite easing restrictions in late April. In March, retail sales plunged at the sharpest rate in nearly five yearsâ€”boding ill for household spending. Turning to Q2, business confidence plunged to an 11-year low in April, and the manufacturing PMI deteriorated at the sharpest pace since May 2009 in the same month; consequently, business investment will likely contract notably. Moreover, consumer confidence plummeted in April, while the number of unemployment applications skyrocketed in recent months, which should keep household spending depressed in the months ahead. Nevertheless, the government has been gradually lifting lockdown measures and has yet to report a second wave of infections, which should help restore confidence levels.
