    Eurozone: Unemployment Rate declines, Harmonized CPI higher-than-expected but still negative | 02.03.2015

     

    The Unemployment Rate in the Eurozone declined to the lowest level since April 2012, Eurostat reported today. The number of people unemployed fell to a seasonally adjusted 11.2% in January from 11.3% in December (revised down from 11.4%). Analyst expected a reading of 11.4%. In December. Germany has the lowest Unemployment Rate with 4.7% followed by Austria with 4.8% whereas Greece and Spain have the highest.

     

     

    Although data for Consumer Price Inflation came in higher-than-expected at -0.3% compared to estimates at -0.5% and a previous reading of -0.6% inflation remained in negative territory for a third consecutive month, preliminary data showed. Given the reading far below the targeted inflation rate of the ECB around 2%, concerns over deflation in the Eurozone persist.
