Monthly Bulletin. Employment. Monthly statistics of registered unemployed in the Community. 1984.6
At the end of last month the number of persons registered as unemployed at public employment offices in the Community of the Nine was 12 million, following a further fall of 150.000 (-1.2%) during the month, g1v1ng an unemployment rate of 10.6X of the civilian working population. The de-cline in the number of unemployed men <-1.8X) was sharper than that of unemployed women <-0,4X). As shown by the seasonally adjusted figures, however, the labour market situation for the Community of the Nine remains the same. National cal-culations for France, the Federal Republic of Germany and the United Kingdom suggest continuing slightly rising tendencies, and only the Netherlands reports a visible decline in the seasonally adjusted figures. At the end of June 1984, the number of registered unemployed under 25 years of age in the Community of the Nine was 4.5 million, or 37.7X of all registered unemployed. Compared with the previous year, this proportion has remained unchanged; in other words, youth unemployment increased between June 1983 and June 1984 to the same extent as overall unemployment (+5.5%). A clear decline in the number of registered young unemployed as been recorded in Belgium and Luxembourg (-8X to -9X) as well as in Denmark (-6X) and the Netherlands (just under -2X). However, any assessment of these figures must take account of the effects of national measures relating to registration and job creation schemes.
