In Germany, the unemployment rate measures the number of people actively looking for a job as a percentage of the labour force.

Latest Updates

Germany's seasonally adjusted jobless rate held at 5.9% for the sixth consecutive month in May 2024, close to three-year highs, and matching market forecasts. The number of unemployed individuals increased by 25 thousand to 2.762 million in May, marking a 17th consecutive period of rising unemployment, and much higher than forecasts of 10 thousand, indicative of the weak economic development in Germany.
