Sweden Jobless Rate FlatSweden Jobless Rate Flat

Sweden’s unemployment rate as measured by the number of registered jobless was unchanged at 7.8% (including migrants) in February from January, a Reuters calculation based on data from the Swedish Public Employment Service showed on Monday. SPES will publish its February figure on March 13. Open unemployment, which excludes government job schemes, was unchanged at 4.1% in February from January, according to the calculation. The reported figures from SPES could deviate marginally from the calculation, as the official numbers are based on the last day of February which SPES will not report figures for in advance.
