France’s unemployment rate holds steady at 7.5% in the final quarter of 2023

In the fourth quarter of 2023, the number of unemployed as defined by the International Labor Office (ILO) increased by 29,000 compared to the previous quarter, reaching 2.3 million people. This represents an increase of 0.4 points in the unemployment rate compared to the end of 2022, which was the lowest level since 1982. However, it remains below its peak in mid-2015 by three more points.

The unemployment rate decreased for young adults aged 15-24 years old but remained almost stable for those aged 50 or over. The rate for women barely changed while that of men increased slightly. Long-term unemployment also rose slightly with an average of 571,000 people declaring to be unemployed and looking for over a year, marking an increase of 33,000 from the previous quarter.
