Unemployment in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 12.4% (a total of 417,300 people), representing an increase of 8.6% in the same period in 2011, according to figures released by the National Statistical Institute (NSI). Among young people aged 15 to 29, unemployment was 20.7%. The institute comes up with a figure of ‘discouraged persons’ – in NSI parlance, those who would like to have a job but have given up trying to get one – in the 15 to 64 age bracket of 210,200 people. The figures confirm earlier alarming data on long-term youth unemployment.
