Eurozone politicians will be delighted to see the region’s jobless rate fall to 9.6% (not 9.8% as I mistyped earlier, sorry).
This is the lowest rate recorded in the euro area since May 2009.
The jobless rate across the European Union came in at 8.2%, unchanged from November, and the lowest since February 2009.
The lowest rates were recorded in the Czech Republic and Germany, while Greece suffered the worst jobless rate (23.0% in October 2016) followed by Spain (18.4%).
