Unemployment in Sweden
Sweden - UnemploymentA mild economic recovery appeared to take hold in Q3, following the previous quarter’s domestic demand-led contraction. In August, industrial output expanded briskly on a monthly basis, while annual retail sales continued their healthy growth trend. In September, the manufacturing PMI hit a 22-month high, with an uptick in demand and increased production driving the improvement. Moreover, despite the unemployment rate matching June’s over 10-year high in September, both consumer and business confidence continued to climb further in the same month, boding well for household and capital spending in Q4. However, a recent escalation of new infections is prompting renewed recommendations against public meetings and non-essential travel between outbreak hotspots, although more stringent measures as seen in other European countries are unlikely to be enforced.
