August estimated unemployment at 5 percent, ministry reports
Poland's unemployment rate likely stayed flat month on month at 5 percent in August, the family and social policy minister has said.
"August estimated unemployment remains at the previous month's level of 5.0 percent," Marlena Malag told PAP on the sidelines of the Economic Forum in Karpacz, southern Poland.
She also said the unemployment rate may increase slightly in autumn when seasonal work ends "but this is a natural tendency."
The August unemployment was in line with market expectations.
