Rome, April 30 - The number of unemployed people in
recession-hit Italy was 2.95 million in March, 297,000 more than
in the same month in 2012, Istat said on Tuesday.
The statistics agency added that the number was 14,000
lower than in February in absolute terms, even though the
percentage of the overall working population on the dole was
flat at 11.5%.
Istat also reported that in March 22,674 people were in
work, 51,000 (0.2%) fewer than in February and 248,000 fewer
than in the same month in 2012.
Earlier this month the agency stressed that its headline
unemployment figures reflect only part of the problem of people
being without jobs in Italy.
For example, it said that in 2012 there were 2.975 million
people who were willing to work but not actively looking for a
job.
In most cases these people have stopped looking because
they have given up hope of finding a job as Italy endures its
longest recession in 20 years.
When added to the people who were unemployed in the
traditional sense - those actively seeking work and eligible for
unemployment benefits - this took the overall number of jobless
in Italy in 2012 up to 5.72 million.
