The unemployment rate tracks the number of unemployed persons as a percentage of the labor force (the total number of employed plus unemployed). These figures generally come from a household labor force survey. This dataset follows the International Labour Organization's (ILO) unemployment definition, where someone is classed as unemployed if:- They are currently without work during the reference period, where work is defined as paid employment/self employment.- They are currently available for work.- They are taking specific steps to seek paid employment or self employment (e.g. registration at a private/public employment exchange, submitting job applications, seeking capital to establish their own enterprise, etc.) This data represents three month rolling values, showing the latest value for the ending month of the relevant period. E.g. for period Jul - Sep, value is shown for September.
