Less Unemployed Than Predicted

According to the November figures from Statistics Sweden,  390 000 Swedes, that is 8% of the current labour force, were registered unemployed. For the same period last year that number was 6.2%.

However, the number of unemployed in Sweden in November was lower than expected. Analysts had predicted unemployment to be at 8.2%, according to earlier prognoses. In October this year unemployment was at 8.1% so the new figures seem to indicate that unemployment in Sweden is decreasing.
