Unemployment Data

We wanted to get the global picture of unemployment and so we’ve used data from the Worldbank and CIA Factbook to create some interactive maps. The comparative statistics should be taken with a pinch of salt as different definitions and methodologies may be involved. Either way, it does give you a good idea of how different countries are affected.

Data from the CIA Factbook on total unemployment levels. The years are slightly different but provide a more complete picture of unemployment where data is missing from the Worldbank in 2011. (Our data below) Click on the image to bring you to an interactive map.
