Poland’s unemployment rate most likely grew to 13.2-13.3 percent in November, Deputy Labor Minister Jacek MÍcina told Radio PiN last Monday.

We expect to record a certain increase of unemployment in November. We hope that it will not be large,” Mr MÍcina said.

According to data from statistics office GUS, in October the registered unemployment rate was 13 percent, unchanged compared to September.

Meanwhile, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in Poland stood at 10.2 percent in October and remained stable compared to September, according to data published by the EU’s statistics office Eurostat.

According to Eurostat, throughout the EU the unemployment rate was 10.9 percent in October, also stable compared to the previous month. In the euro area unemployment was at 12.1 percent compared to 12.2 percent in September.
