Unemployment levels fall all over Croatia in 2017

By  Feb 07, 2018

Of the 128 cities in Croatia only two registered a growth in the unemployment rate last year.

Analysis by the IT company COIN show that the city of Buzet in Croatia has the lowest unemployment rate in the country, at only 2.6 percent, whilst the city of Križevci had the largest drop in unemployment, from 7.3 percent in December 2016 to 4.1 percent in December 2017.

According to this new data, out of the 128 Croatian cities only two registered unemployment decreases of less than ten percent, while the rest were mostly double-digit drops. 15 cities saw drops of 30 percent, 52 cities drops of unemployment rates between 20 and 30 percent and 50 between 10 and 20 percent. There are a few factors for this decrease in the level of unemployment, from more seasonal jobs in the tourism industry to people leaving the country to find work in other European Union countries.

The ten cities with the highest unemployment levels in the country are mainly in the region of Slavonia.
