Monthly Bulletin. Employment. Monthly statistics of registered unemployed in the Community. April 1981.
The number of persons registered as unemployed in the Community of Nine at the end of April 1981 was 8.4 million, representing 7.6% of the civilian working population. The seasonally adjusted total of unemployed amounted to 8.5 million at the end of April, compared with 8.3 million at the end of·the preceding month. The steady rise in unemployment since the beginning of 1980 has thus continued during April. In all Member States other than Luxembourg the seasonal fall in the numbers un-employed has been much less than usual, with the result that the seasonally adjusted figures continue to show a general rise throughout the Community.
