Regional unemployment rate in Italy 2019, by gender

In 2019, the Italian region which registered the lowest unemployment rate in the whole country was Trentino-South Tyrol. Only 3.3 percent of the male, and 4.7 of the female workforce in this area did not have a job. Overall, the unemployment rate of women in all Italian regions was higher than the unemployment rate of men.

Unemployment in South Italy

Since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, the south of Italy was particularly affected by the crisis on the labor market. Despite a steadily decrease in the country’s unemployment rate which started in 2015, many southern regions are still struggling against the high percentage of workforce without any occupation. In 2019, Calabria, Sicily and Campania registered the unemployment rates of about 20 percent, which means that one in five potential workers in the regions were without a job.

The EU member states with the highest unemployment rates

With roughly 16.5 percent of potential employees without any occupation, Greece was the first European Union member state in terms of the highest unemployment rate in 2020. Italy placed third, just behind Spain, where about 14 percent of the labor force was unemployed.
