The Labour Force Survey (LFS) shows that the seasonally-adjusted unemployment was 3.8 per cent of the labour force in October (average of September-November). Compared with July (average of June-August), this was up 0.3 percentage points – or 9 000 persons. This increase is within the error margin. The increase in unemployment shown by the LFS came among those aged 25-74.

The number of people registered as unemployed or on government initiatives to promote employment with the Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) decreased by 1 000 from July to October. This figure is also seasonally adjusted and based on a three-month average.
