Indec says unemployment down to 6.4%

A breakdown of employment figures over the past 12 months, taken from the INDEC report released today.
Unemployment numbers saw a decrease at the end of 2013, closing the year with 6.4 percent of the population out of work according to data released by the National Institute of Statistics and Census.

This proportion, taken from the last three months of 2013, represents a 0.5 percent drop from figures recorded in the same period of 2012, when 6.9 percent of the population was officially counted as unemployed.

INDEC's statistics also showed an underemployment level of 7.8%, while the employment level represented 42.7% of the Argentine public and productivity levels reached 45.6%.

The study, which was not conducted across the entire country, showed almost 1.5 million people lived with problems in employment.

The agency surmised that out of an economically active population of more than 9.6 million inhabitants, measured across the 32 largest cities in Argentina, 655,000 were unemployed and a further 815,000 underemployed.
