Highlights
The number of people out of work rose 323 or 0.2 percent to 133,926 in July to leave the unemployment rate unchanged at 3.0 percent. However, seasonally adjusted, joblessness was down 299 or 0.2 percent at 144,312, although this too was small enough to keep the adjusted rate steady at June's 3.2 percent. The data were in line with expectations.

There was also some better news on vacancies which, having fallen at the end of the second quarter, rose an adjusted 0.3 percent on the month to stand an unadjusted 14.6 percent higher on the year.

Overall, the Swiss labour market continues to move ahead but progress remains very slow.

Definition
The unemployment rate measures the number of unemployed as a percentage of the labour force. Both seasonally adjusted and unadjusted monthly data are provided.  Why Investors Care
