Unemployment in Poland still lowest in EU

“In February, unemployment in Poland was the lowest in the European Union, we are the leaders for another month,” Norbert Maliszewski, the head of the Center for Strategic Analyzes (CAS), Undersecretary of State in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, referred to the Eurostat data.

In February, the unemployment rate, after seasonal adjustment, according to the Eurostat methodology, amounted to 3.1 percent in Poland, as in January. The number of unemployed amounted to 540,000, against 531,000 in January.

"For me, who remembers the difficult periods of high unemployment in Poland, this is very important information," he added. 

The Czech Republic is right behind Poland with an unemployment rate of 3.2 percent and the next is the Netherlands with 3.6 percent.

The unemployment rate in the euro area in February 2021, adjusted for seasonal factors, was 8.3 percent, compared to 8.3 percent in the previous month, after the correction from 8.1 percent. The average unemployment rate in the EU countries was 7.5 percent, likewise in January.
