Seasonally- adjusted figures from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show that there were 102 000 unemployed persons in December (average of November-January). The increase of 1 000 unemployed persons from September (average of August-October) is clearly within the LFS margin of error. The number of people registered as unemployed or on government initiatives to promote employment with the Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) remained unchanged in the same period.

Growth in employment

According to the LFS, the seasonally-adjusted number of employed persons increased by 25 000 from September to December. The growth took place among both women and men – and mainly within the age group 25-74 years. The share of employed persons corresponded to 68.8 per cent of the population aged 15-74 years in December; up 0.4 percentage points from September.
