In absolute terms, this accounts for 989,227 jobless. Last year, people out of work amounted to 1,113,631.

Last month, as many as 12,519,285 people had a job, 7,450,427 of which were employed in the formal sector whereas 5,068,858 were in the informal sector.

In a press release, INE president Elías Eljuri extolled a trend towards the consolidation of the sectors, which create most jobs and afford more stability for workers, taking into account the formal-informal labor ratio.
