Rapid Reports. Regions. Unemployment in the Community regions in 1991. 1991.3
The unemployment rate in the Community as a whole (excluding the 5 new Landers of the F.R. of Germany and the French D.O.M.) went up from 8.4% in April 1990 to 8.8% in April 1991 mainly due to the increases in unemployment in Belgium, France, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Almost 60% of the regions suffered increases in their unemployment rates in 1991; particularly large increases occurred in the southern regions of the U.K. ( rates in the South East and South West rose around 3 percentage points), and the central English regions (Yorkshire and Humberside, East and West Midlands and East Anglia) who experienced increases of between 1.5 and 2 percentage points). Increases in the regions of Molise (I),and Valencia and Rioja (E) were also significant. In France, unemployment rates increased in the majority of regions rising above 10% in Auvergne and in the coastal regions (except those in the north west). In the F.R. of Germany unemployment rates fell in all the old German Landers except West Berlin.
