Europe – Regional unemployment rates – From 2.5% in Salzburg and Tirol to 30.4% in Andalucia

Regional unemployment rates varied widely across the 271 NUTS 2 regions of the EU27 in 2011, with the lowest rates recorded in the regions of Tirol and Salzburg (both 2.5%) in Austria, Zeeland (2.7%) in the Netherlands and Oberbayern (2.8%),  Niederbayern (2.9%) and  Freiburg (3.0%) in Germany, while the highest rates were registered in the regions of  Andalucía (30.4%) and  Canarias (29.7%) in Spain and the French Overseas Department of Réunion (29.6%). 

Among the regions, 44 had an unemployment rate of 4.8% or less in 2011, half the average for the EU27. They included sixteen regions in Germany, ten of the twelve regions in the Netherlands, eight out of nine regions in Austria, four in Belgium, two in Italy and one each in the Czech Republic, France, Romania and the United Kingdom. At the other extreme, seventeen regions had a rate of 19.2% or higher, double that of the EU27: ten regions in Spain, four French Overseas Departments and three regions in Greece. These data on regional unemployment, compiled on the basis of the EU Labour Force Survey, are published by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
