Italy: unemployment rate in 2018, by region In 2018, the highest unemployment rate was registered in the south of Italy. Calabria, Sicily and Campania, the three regions where the shares of citizens without a job exceeded 20 percent, led in the ranking of Italian regions with the highest unemployment rates. The disparities in unemployment indicators can be observed not only on the regional level, but also among genders. In the year considered, almost one in four women in Calabria were without a job, whereas the share of unemployed males was of 19.6 percent. The region with the highest percentage of employed individuals, both men and women, was Trentino-South Tyrol.
