The Labour Force Survey (LFS) shows that the seasonally-adjusted unemployment was 3.3 per cent of the labour force in June (average of May–July). This was down 0.1 percentage points – or 2 000 persons – from March (average of February–April); a change which is within the LFS error margin . By comparison, 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 during this period. This figure is also seasonally adjusted and based on a three-month average.

Stable employment

According to the LFS, there were 8 000 more employed persons in June than in March, adjusted for seasonal variations. This increase is within the error margin, but still in line with the development last year. From June 2013 to June 2014, the number of employed persons increased by 29 000.The share of employed persons corresponded to 68.6 per cent of the population aged 15-74 years in June 2014; unchanged for March.
