The open unemployment rate in Mexico amounted to 5.5 percent in June 2020, a 1.3 percentage point increase compared to a month earlier.

Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak in Mexico, the National Employment Survey in Mexico, known as 'Encuesta Nacional de Ocupación y Empleo (ENOE)', had to be cancelled until further notice. As a result, the National Institute of Statistics and Geography, known as 'Instituto Nacional de Geografía y Estadística (INEGI)', carried out a National Employment Telephone Survey- 'Encuesta Telefónica de Ocupación y Empleo (ETOE)'. The survey is meant to monitor the employment environment in the country during the lockdown period.

Due to a difference in methodology ENOE data should only serve as a reference in comparison to ETOE data. ETOE is not a continuation of ENOE.
