Poland's unemployment rate at 3.0 pct in June - Eurostat

Poland's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate reached 3.0 percent in June 2020, up from 2.9 in May, Eurostat, the EU's statistical office reported on Thursday.

According to Poland's Central Statistical Office (GUS), Poland's unemployment grew to 6.1 percent in June 2020 from 6.0 percent in May.

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

The number of unemployed registered in labour offices stood at 520,000 in June against 500,000 in May, Eurostat said.

The eurozone (EA19) seasonally-adjusted unemployment figure rose to 7.8 percent in June 2020 from 7.7 percent in May.

The EU27 average unemployment rate in June 2020 increased to 7.1 percent from 7.0 percent in the previous month.
