Rapid Reports. Regions. Unemployment rates in the community regions in 1990. 1990.3
The unemployment rate for the Community as a whole fell from 9% in April 1989 to 8.3% in April 1990. This downward trend was reflected in around 90% of Community regions. In Belgium there was a downward movement of rates in all regions, and in Spain, France, Italy and the United Kingdom there was a similar trend in all but one of their respective regions. Particularly large decreases occurred in the United Kingdom and Italy where the unemployment rates in six regions (Cumbria; North Yorkshire; Derbyshire, Notts.; Salop, Staffs.; Clwyd, Dyfed, Gwynedd, Powys; Grampian) and three regions (Valle d'Aosta; TrentinoAlto Adige; Veneto) respectively fell by more than onefifth of their rates of one year earlier. Denmark and Portugal were the exceptions to this downward movement, with rates increasing in all of their regions. In the F.R.Germany unemployment rates fell in all but eight of the regions with four remaining the same. Graph 1 allows comparison of the national unemployment rates, both between Member States and with the Community average, and shows the upper and lower regional unemployment rates. The degree to which unemployment is experienced throughout the Community varies widely between areas, age groups and the sexes. In geographical terms, the total unemployment rate ranges from as little as 1.5% in GD.Luxembourg to 28.9% in the Spanish region of Ceuta y Melilla
