The registered unemployment rate in Poland dropped to 12.1 percent in June from 12.5 percent in May, according to an estimate issued by the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy on Wednesday.
The number of unemployed persons registered in labor offices at the end of June was 1.91 million. Some 71,900 persons canceled their registration over that month.
“June ended with the lowest unemployment rate in two years,” said Labor Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz. “[The decline] is not only the result of people canceling their registrations in labor offices, but also of a lower number of new unemployed persons,” he explained.
