EUROSTAT, the EC statistical office in Luxembourg, has estimate that EU seasonally-adjusted unemployment in November 1994 was 10.7%, the same as October.

In November '93 it was 10.8%.

EUROSTAT estimates that around 17 million people were unemployed in the EU in November, a seasonally-adjusted figure in line with International Labour Organisation criteria.

Since November 1993, most significant falls are in the UNITED KINGDOM (10.2% to 8.8%), DENMARK (10.7% to 9.5% - October figures), IRELAND (18.3% to 17.5%) and SPAIN (22.7% to 22.1%).

The biggest rises were in ITALY (11.2% to 12.0%), the NETHERLANDS (9.5% to 10.1% - October figures), PORTUGAL (5.6% to 6.2%) and LUXEMBOURG (2.9% to 3.5%), which, nevertheless, still has the Twelve's lowest rate by far.

Male unemployment is down (9.6% to 9.2%) but female unemployment up slightly (12.7% to 12.8%).

The under-25 rate is down (20.4% to 19.5%). Biggest falls are in SPAIN (38.4% to 36.3%), the UNITED KINGDOM (15.6% to 13.5%), DENMARK (11.4% to 10% - October figures) and BELGIUM (20.3% to 19.4%).
