Unemployed persons are those persons aged 15 years and over who are without work; are available to start work within the next two weeks; and have actively sought employment at some time during the previous four weeks.
The unemployment rate is the number of unemployed persons as a percentage of the labour force. The labour force is the total of the employed and the unemployed persons.
International standards: In accordance with the Eurostat recommendations, the unemployment rate is calculated according to the recommendations of the 13th International Conference of Labour Statisticians organised by the International Labour Office (ILO) in 1982. The use of the same definitions and concepts throughout the European Union ensures comparability of the results between Member States.
The standard unemployment rate published by the BNB is an estimate of the standard unemployment rate following ILO guidelines for the definition of unemployment, as adapted by Eurostat
Monthly data: end-of-month data.
