The municipalities with the highest unemployment rates in Finland are found in Lapland and North Karelia, reports Tekniikka & Talous.

The highest unemployment rate of 18.8 per cent is found in Salla, Lapland, and the next highest rates in Lieksa, North Karelia, Enontekiö, Lapland, Juuka, North Karelia, and Tohmajärvi, North Karelia. The regions with the highest unemployment rates, meanwhile, are North Karelia (14.5%) and South-Eastern Finland (13.0%).

Tekniikka & Talous writes that the figures are evidence of regional inequalities in employment prospects, especially in light of recent improvements in the national unemployment rate.

The Ministry of Employment and the Economy has reported that the national unemployment rate stood at 10.3 per cent in November. Unemployment, it added, is particularly uncommon in Åland and Ostrobothnia, where unemployed job seekers account only for four and seven per cent, respectively, of the working-age population.
