MOSCOW, May 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The total number of officially registered jobless people in Russia decreased by 3.35 percent, the Russian Ministry of Health and Social Development said in the ministry’s regular report on Wednesday.
“In the period from March 29 through April 25, 2012, the total number of officially registered unemployed people in the country went down by 3.35 percent or 44,230 people and amounted to 1,276,061 people as of April 25,” the ministry said.
In the period under review, “the decline of the officially registered number of jobless persons was reported from 80 regions of Russia,” the ministry’s press service said, adding that the republics of Kalmykia, North Ossetia-Alania, as well as the Astrakhan, Omsk and Kurgan regions were the country’s territories with the most considerable decrease of the indicator.
At the same time, three regions of the country – the Republics of Tyva, Kabardino-Balkaria and the Chechen Republic – reported the hike in the unemployment rate in the designated period.
In addition, the number of employees, who are temporarily out of work, work part-time or have to go on forced vacations, was at about 129,389 people, which was 13.5 percent (20,308 people) smaller than in the preceding period, the press service said.
The unemployment rate is calculated as the ratio of the total number of jobless people to the total number of able-bodied population.
The ministry’s monitoring is based on official information about dismissals, received from more than 67,500 Russian organizations and companies in all regions of the country.
