Annual average unemployment figures for Germany from 1996 to 2018 (in millions)

Annual average unemployment figures for Germany 1996-2018 This statistic shows the annual average unemployment figures for Germany from 1996 to 2018. In 2018, approximately 2.4 million people were registered as unemployed on average. "Registered as unemployed" are those who are registered with the Bundesagentur für Arbeit or a similar association providing basic social care as "being out of a job (i.e. works less than 15 hours per week), looking for a job, available for the job market." This means that not every employable person in need is unemployed. Thus, persons who do not work are not automatically unemployed.
