Employment in Germany shows lowest increase in last 10 years in first quarter

According to the provisional data released by the German Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), employment in the country increased by 0.3 percent in the first quarter of the year compared to the same quarter of 2019.

While the number of people participating in employment increased by 147 thousand in the first quarter, total employment was realized as 45 million 36 thousand.

“The annual increase in employment slowed noticeably even earlier this year. This low increase was recorded at 0.3 percent in the second quarter of 2010,” Destatis said.

The statement reminded that the increase in employment was 1.1 percent in the first quarter of 2019, 1 percent in the second quarter, 0.7 percent in the third quarter and 0.6 percent in the last quarter.

Compared to the last quarter of last year, total employment declined by 1 percent (467 thousand) in the first quarter.

Destatis noted that the measures taken to prevent the spread of the Kovid-19 outbreak in the second half of March led to increased uncertainty in employment estimates, adding that the increase in short-term employees since the second half of March did not affect the number of employed persons, since the employment statistics were counted as employees rather than unemployed. .

The biggest contribution to employment came from the public service sector, such as education and health, with an increase of 1.9 percent (212 thousand). The increase in employment in trade, logistics and communication technologies was 2.7 percent (37 thousand) and the increase in trade, transportation, accommodation and food services was 0.1 percent (15 thousand).

On the other hand, the decline in employment in the manufacturing sector, excluding construction, continued in the first quarter. The number of people employed by the sector decreased by 1 percent (82 thousand people) to 8 million 270 thousand in the first quarter of the year compared to the same quarter of 2019.
