Chart of the month

Real gross domestic product in Switzerland is already above pre-crisis levels again. Seemingly in line with this development, the seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate, as measured by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), has recovered steadily since December 2020 to 2.9%. The unemployment rate in the Swiss Labour Force Survey (SLFS) paints a somewhat different picture. While the SECO unemployment rate is calculated on a reference date on the basis of the job seekers registered with a regional employment centre (RAV), the SLFS counts anyone who has been looking for a job for one month as unemployed.
