The seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate in the European Community is estimated by Eurostat, after correction of the differences between national meth! ads of recording unemployment, at 8.7% for the month of June 1991. This rep-resents the same level as the previous month. In the Community as a whole, the rate of unemployment for women (11.2%) re-mains noticeably higher than that for men (9%), as it does in all Member States except the United Kingdom. However, over the last 12 months, the unemployment rate has increased appreci-ably less for women ( +0.2 percentage points) than for men ( +0.6 percentage points). In the majority of Member States where unemployment is rising, the increase is higher among women than among man (United Kingdom + 1. 7 and + 2.9 pet-· centage points respectively), Denmark ( +0.7 and +0.9 percentage points) while in those countries where unemployment is falling it is decreasing proportionally more among women than among men (former Federal Republic of Germany -1.1 and -0.3 percentage points, Portugal -0.5 and -0.1 percentage points).
