Poland's registered unemployment rate fell to 11.9% in July from 12.0% in June, according to Central Statistical Office (GUS) figures released Tuesday.
The number of registered jobless at the end of July measured 1.88 mln.
The number of new registrations measured 200,000, up 25.3% m/m, but down 15.3% y/y.
The reading is slightly above the Labor Ministry's prior estimate and a PAP consensus survey, both of which pointed to 11.8% unemployment.
