The Census and Statistics Department announced this afternoon (16th) that the unemployment rate from September to November was 3.7%, which was 0.1 percentage point lower than the 3.8% unemployment rate from August to October announced last month. A new low after the month, at 3.4% for the month.
The latest underemployment rate from September to November was 1.6%, down 0.1 percentage point, and the number of unemployed fell by 8,500 to 138,900.
Sun Yuhan, Secretary of the Labor and Welfare Bureau, said that the short-term prospects of the labor market will depend on the pace of recovery of local economic activities. Further relaxation of epidemic prevention-related measures and the consumer voucher program will also help, but the tightening of financial conditions will offset some of the positive effects. I also call on all sectors of society to continue to work together with the government to keep the epidemic under control.
