Unemployment Rate in Sweden was recorded at 6.7 percent in October


2015, the same as in the previous month and lower than 7.5 percent a year
earlier. Year-on-year, the number of unemployed fell by 40,000 to 349,000
persons while the number of employed rose by 81,000 to 4,853,000 persons.
Seasonally adjusted, the unemployment rate was 7.2 percent, down from 7.3
percent in the previous month and from 7.9 percent in October 2014.
Unemployment Rate in Sweden averaged 5.87 percent from 1980 until 2015,
reaching an all time high of 10.50 percent in June of 1997 and a record low of
1.30 percent in July of 1989. Unemployment Rate in Sweden is reported by
the Statistics Sweden.

GDP grew by 1.7 per cent from the third quarter to the fourth quarter last year. This reflects
broad-based improvements, but also temporary effects such as stockbuilding and high general
government consumption. The outlook for exports is increasingly bright, with GDP growth
continuing to accelerate in the US and the euro area. The NIERs Economic Tendency Survey
also reveals clear growth in export orders. Reduced economic uncertainty, tax cuts and
expansionary monetary policy mean that household consumption will rise more quickly this year.
The stronger economy will also impact on the labour market. The normal pattern is for
employment to be influenced by GDP growth, and so employment will continue to rise while
unemployment will fall.
Inflation is very low both in Sweden and abroad. Inflation will remain low in 2014 and then
climb only slowly, not reaching 2 per cent as measured by the CPIF (consumer price index with
constant mortgage rates) until the end of 2017.

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Russia was worth 1860.60 billion US dollars in
2014. The GDP value of Russia represents 3 percent of the world economy. GDP in Russia
averaged 836.06 USD Billion from 1989 until 2014, reaching an all time high of 2079.02 USD
Billion in 2013 and a record low of 195.91 USD Billion in 1999. GDP in Russia is reported by
the World Bank.

However, improved unemployment figures mostly reflect better opportunities for


Russians with certain experience, as young graduates still have difficulties in finding a place to
work. Russias Statistics Service reported that youth unemployment in Russia stood at 16.8% for
people aged between 15 and 24.
However, data from the US Institute for Public Opinion Gallup Institute doesnt look that
rosy, saying that the real unemployment rate in Russia is 3 times higher than the officially
reported one. The Gallop calculations show that unemployment among women stands at 22%,
while for men at 19%.
The total unemployment figure was calculated to International Labor Organization standards that
consider all unemployed people who dont have permanent occupation that brings them money.
Another way to figure out the unemployment rate in Russia is used by the Federal Labor and
Unemployment Service. The latter takes into account those who registered their unemployment
status with the appropriate services. Calculated to this standard, Russias official unemployment
in October stood at its lowest since the start of the century. The number of registered
unemployed stood at million people, while more than 70mn had a job.
