Spain Unemployed Persons
In Spain, unemployed people are only those persons who are registered as such at the employment office — in Spain, the National Institute for Employment (Instituto Nacional de Empleo, INEM) — and who have contacted the office in order to seek work actively in the four weeks previous to the survey. People who are registered and wait for the employment office to contact them will no longer be counted: in order to be considered as active job-seekers, unemployed people must contact the employment office at least once a month.
