Poland's unemployment rate at 2.9 pct in January - Eurostat

Poland's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate reached 2.9 percent in January 2020, Eurostat, the EU's statistical office reported on Tuesday.

According to Poland's Central Statistical Office (GUS), the unemployment rate in the country rose to 5.5 percent in January 2020 from 5.2 percent a month earlier.

The discrepancy between GUS and Eurostat figures results from the use of different methodologies.

The euro area (EA19) seasonally-adjusted unemployment stayed flat at 7.4 percent month on month in January 2020.

The EU28 average unemployment rate in January 2020 remained at 6.2 percent, the same level as in December 2019.
