    ANA-MPA -- The Greek unemployment rate jumped to a new record high of 27.9 pct of the workforce in June, with the number of unemployed people totalling 1,403,698, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) said on Thursday.

    A total of 787,129 people lost their jobs since the first year of the implementation of a fiscal consolidation programme agreed with the troika.

    The statistics service, in a report, said that the unemployment rate among young people reached 58.8 pct, while among the 25-34 age group the unemployment rate was 37.4 pct.

    Epirus-Western Macedonia led in unemployment among the country's regions (29.7 pct), followed by Maceconia-Thrace (29.5 pct), Attica (27.7 pct), Thessaly-Central Greece (27 pct) and the Peloponnese-Western Greece-Ionian Islands (25.8 pct). Crete (22.9 pct from 24.1 pct) and Aegean (21.6 pct from 22.7 pct) recorded a decline in unemployment rates compared with June 2012.

    The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in June was 27.9 pct, from 24.6 pct in June 2012 and 27.6 pct in May 2013. The statistics service noted that the unemployment rate fell by 1.2 percentage points in June (non-seasonally adjusted estimates).

    The number of people still at work was 3,628,421, down 3.4 pct compared with June 2012 and by 0.1 pct compared with May 2013. The financially non-active people (not working, not seeking work) totaled 3,334,690, down 0.7 pct from June 2012 but up 0.4 pct from May this year.

    Unemployment among women rose to 31.9 pct in June from 28.4 pct in June last year, while among men it rose to 24.9 pct from 21.9 pct, respectively.
