German jobless total edges down more than anticipated in October

In October, Germany's unemployment total went down moderately more than anticipated, as data disclosed on Thursday. It showed the strength of a labor market, which keeps generating new jobs and backing a consumption-led upswing in Europe's number one economy.

Data issued by the Federal Labour Office unveiled the seasonally adjusted jobless total inched down by 11,000 tumbling to 2.495 million, which is the greatest sink than the 10,000 estimate in a Reuters survey.

The unemployment rate was still at 5.6%, which is the lowest value since reunification in 1990.

The firm upturn in the autumn has made both unemployment as well as underemployment dive more strongly than before.

The healthy labor market needs to continue backing a consumption-based surge cycle in Germany, thus contributing to ascending tax revenues, which will provide the next government with fiscal leeway to spur investment.
