Norwegian unemployment up. Statistics Norway (SSB) reports the rate of unemployment has risen in the country by 0.3 percent, according to a recent Labour Force Survey (LFS). 3.7 percent of the workforce is now out of a job. Seasonally-adjusted figures for April show unemployment has increased by 7,000 in the last six months, and is evenly-distributed between the sexes. The number of jobless registered with NAV (Labour and Welfare organisation) rose by 2,000 in the same period. Though SSB considers employment to have been stable, seasonally-adjusted figures show it actually fell by 4,000.

Seasonally-adjusted figures for April show unemployment has increased by 7,000 in the last six months, and is evenly-distributed between the sexes. The number of jobless registered with NAV (Labour and Welfare organisation) rose by 2,000 in the same period.

Though SSB considers employment to have been stable, seasonally-adjusted figures show it actually fell by 4,000.

The LFS only includes persons who are registered as residents in the population register. Persons working in Norway who are not registered as permanent residents, or who are planning to stay for less than six months, are not included in the employment figure.
