Unemployment Rate

The Unemployment Rate

The ratio of unemployed citizens over 18 years of age and the total labor force. If the unemployment is high, it’s not only a sign of high efficiency of labor employment, but also a threat to economic expansion, since it leads to accumulation, but not consumption. Unemployment Rate has significant influence on German and European politicians (unemployment rate in Europe is usually high enough). It has significant influence of decisions made by Federal Reserve System and politicians. In the USA this data is published along with the NFP (Nonfarm Payrolls). It has a great impact on forex market. The Unemployment Rate is usually analyzed along with the Nonfarm Payrolls. The growth of the Nonfarm Payrolls at the growth of Unemployment Rate shows that the number of unemployed in the farming industry is increasing. When expecting major interest rate increases, this indicator’s value decrease leads to the US dollar rate growth. In the Euro zone the data is published in the first decade of each month, in Japan – at the end of each month.
