German unemployment rises

Sep 30, 2014 12:00 AM

The number of those out of work in Germany posted a surprise gain in September, with seasonally adjusted unemployment rising by 12,000 from August, the labour office said Tuesday.

The increase pushed the total number of unemployed in Europe's biggest economy to 2.918 million.

Analysts had expected unemployment to drop by 2,000 in August.

The unemployment rate was unchanged at a more-than two decade low of 6.7 per cent.

In seasonally unadjusted terms, unemployment fell by 94,000 to 2.808 million, the labour office said, resulting in the unadjusted rate falling from 6.7 per cent last month to 6.5 per cent in September.
