The press release by the INEC says the trend in rising unemployment was both in rural and urban areas. In the first, the rate was 10.2%, in the second, 9.5%.

The difficulty in finding work is in addition to the “underemployed”, ie those working fewer hours than they want.

The percentage of persons affected by underemployment is estimated at 14.2% in the quarter, 2 percentage points higher than in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The INEC survey found that the number of employed fell by almost 30.000 people, from 2.059.600 employed in the last quarter of 2014, compared to 2.088.282 in the same period the previous year.

The employment breakdown by gender, according to the  Continuing Survey of Employment  (Spanish: Encuesta Continua de Empleo ECE), is 1.2 million men and 782.000 women.
