Euro zone unemployment numbers point to a tepid regional recovery, analysts said on Tuesday, after official data show unemployment levels remained unchanged in August.
Unemployment stood at 12.0 percent in August, European statistics agency Eurostat said, after it revised its previous figure for July.
Although the actual amount of people unemployed fell for a third consecutive month in August to 19.2 million people — the lowest level since April — this was not enough to lower the 12 percent figure.
