Spain | LFS confirms that the recovery of the labor market was interrupted in the 3Q19

Despite the positive seasonality, employment increased by only 69,400 people (1.8% a/a), less than expected. This, combined with the rise in active population, led to a modest fall in the unemployment rate (-0.1pp to 13.9%). Excluding seasonality, employment stagnated and the unemployment rate rebounded to 14.4%
