Spain | The weakness of labour market registrations continued in January

Gross social security affiliation fell by 244,000 people in January (1.8% YoY) and unemployment rosed by 90,200 (-1.0% YoY). Excluding seasonal factors, employment barely grew by 9,000 people and unemployment by 4,000, which, in any case, represented a prolongation of the sluggishness in the labour market registrations

Key points
