Spains Under 25's unemployment in March increases to 41.2%

Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union has published the unemployment figures for March 2010.

Spain remains the European Country with the second highest unemployment figure of 19.1%, an increase of .1% from February and 1.7% from march 2009 when the figure was 17.4%.

The overall percentage for the 27 EU countries is 9.6%, the same as February 2010, but an increase on March 2009 from 8.5%. For the Euro Area the corresponding figures are 10% for 2010 and 9.1% for 2009.

For the Under 25's the unemployed percentage is an amazing 41.2 %, a 0.6% increase from Feb. and a 4.9% from the previous year.

I cannot compare these figures with those for the UK as there are no figures available for Feb. & Mar. as they are not available to Eurostat. As a help to compare the total unemployed in the UK for January 2010 is shown as 7.8%, and for the Under 25's 19.7%.
