Unemployment levels drops for 5th consecutive month

Good news came this week in the form of yet another drop in unemployment levels. The national institute of statistics (INE) reports that unemployment is now down to 11.1%. In numbers, this means Portugal has around 567,300 unemployed people in a workforce of 4,548 million. Numbers have been dropping since February, said INE, though the 11.1% level has remained ‘constant’ since June.
