World Employment and Social Outlook - Trends 2016

Where is unemployment the highest in 2016 ?

In most advanced economies, 2015 was marked by better than anticipated job growth, especially in the United States and some Central and Northern European countries. However, despite recent improvements, unemployment rates remain high in Southern Europe, and unemployment has tended to increase in those advanced economies most affected byhe slowdown in emerging Asian economies.
