Supplementary notes

The registered unemployment rate is calculated as the ratio of the number of registered unemployed persons to the economically active civilian population, i.e., excluding employees of budgetary entities conducting activity within the scope of national defence and public safety. The unemployment rate is given including persons working on private farms in agriculture (comprising a part of the economically active civilian population) estimated on the basis of the results of censuses. The data on unemployment and employment used for calculation of the unemployment rate come from the sources varied in respect to the method of data collection, which may lead to some inaccuracies, particularly in case of unemployment rates by powiats. The unemployed are localized according to their place of residence or stay, while the employed — according to the address of their place of work.
