Print version

In February 2012 the registered unemployment rate in Slovenia went down by 0.1 of a percentage point, reaching 12.4%. The number of persons in employment increased by 450.

The registered unemployment rate went down

The registered unemployment rate in Slovenia decreased by 0.1 of a percentage point in February 2012, thus it reached 12.4% by the end of the month. The slight decrease in the unemployment rate was mostly due to the increase in the number of women in employment, while at the same time the number of registered unemployed women went down. The unemployment rate was 12.8% for women and 12.1% for men. Among all of the registered unemployed persons the share of men still remained higher; it was 53.5%.

The number of persons in employment slightly increased

The number of person in employment increased by 450 persons in February 2012 compared to the previous month. Gender analysis showed that the number of women in employment rose by approximately 800, while the number of men in employment declined by around 350. The number of persons in employment decreased the most in Obalno-kraška statistical region (by almost 400), while the number of persons in employment increased the most in Osrednjeslovenska and Podravska statistical regions, which are the two regions with highest numbers of persons in employment; almost half of all persons in employment in Slovenia worked in these two regions.

Comparison with survey data

According to the Labour Force Survey data the ILO unemployment rate in Slovenia was 8.7% in the fourth quarter of 2011, while the registered unemployment rate for the same period stood at 12.0%. The difference between both rates is a result of different methodologies used.
