There has been a drop in the number out of work in the Isle of Man for the fifth month in a row.
The number out of work in August was 1,028.
That’s 27 down on the figure in July but 36 up on August 2012.
The Manx unemployment rate is 2.3 per cent. The UK’s rate last month was 7.8 per cent.
Germany’s is 5.3 per cent, Spain’s 26.3 per cent, Greece’s 27.6 per cent and the Republic of Ireland’s 13.4 per cent.
The Manx figure includes people claiming for credits only but not benefits. It does not include people under the age of 18 who aren’t claiming benefits.
