Must read

Turkey’s unemployment rate edged up 0.1 points month-on-month to 10.2 percent in April, official data showed on Monday, while a seasonally adjusted measure of labor underutilization rose 1.7 percentage points to 23.8 percent, Reuters reported.

The survey, which was not conducted in some provinces hit by the February earthquakes in the previous two months, was carried out throughout the country in April, the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) said.

The labor underutilization measure has slid after peaking at 29.6 percent in January 2021 due to the economic fallout from pandemic measures but had started picking up again in recent months.

TurkStat data showed the labor force participation rate in April rose to 53.9 percent from 53.0 percent a month earlier.
