Iran’s Unemployment Rate Jumps to 15 Percent

Iran’s unemployment rate has reached 15 percent in the quarter ending 21 June, a jump of 4 percentage points over the same period last year. The government-owned Statistics Center of Iran that released the unexpectedly high rate of unemployment growth said in a statement today in Tehran that recent draught in some parts of Iran was a contributing factor. The government’s unemployment figures are not verified by independent sources.
