The unemployment rate in Sweden probably fell to 8.5% in April, according to the median estimate by experts. In March the jobless rate came in at 8.6%.
From March 2005, the indicator covers all people of working age, who during the reference period were not employed, but have a desire to work and were actively seeking work during the last four weeks. People waiting to start work in the next three months are also included. Data from 1976 included also students eligible for unemployment by standards of the International Labour Organisation – ILO. The organization re-entered the survey in October 2007 and the unemployment rate is now calculated as the percentage of unemployed people to the total level of labor force in the country. Workforce represents the total of employed and unemployed persons.
Statistics Sweden is scheduled to release an official report at 07:30 GMT. A lower than expected unemployment rate will heighten the appeal of the Swedish krona.
