About Unemployment Rate (Switzerland)
Percentage of the total work force that is unemployed and actively seeking employment during the previous month. Released monthly, about 9 days after the month ends. This is the seasonally adjusted data (as most FF numbers are), not to be confused with the non-seasonally adjusted number reported by some news agencies. Although it's generally viewed as a lagging indicator, the number of unemployed people is an important signal of overall economic health because consumer spending is highly correlated with labor-market conditions.
