The number of jobless persons fell in October seasonally adjusted to 46,325 from 46,724 the month before, which is the lowest since April 2013, the statistical service said.

The number of unemployed fell in October by 3,758 compared to a year ago mainly on a decrease in the number of jobless in the trade, construction and financial and insurance sectors which was able to offset an increase in the public administration and hospitality sectors, Cystat said in a statement on its website today.
