Chiffres-clés - June 2019

As of 30 June 2019, 15,037 resident jobseekers were registered with ADEM. This represents an increase of 555
persons, or 3.8%, over one year. The current increase, which has been observed for two months, is partly due
to the fact that beneficiaries of REVIS have registered with ADEM as jobseekers since the new legislation came
into force on 1 January 2019. Compared to May 2019, the number of resident jobseekers has decreased by 87
persons or 0.6% due to seasonal adjustments. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate calculated by
STATEC is 5.5% in June 2019.
The number of jobseekers registered with ADEM who are not resident in Luxembourg was 2,475 as at 30 June
2019. This is a decrease of 7.4% compared to the same month last year.
During the month of June 2019, ADEM registered 1,943 new resident jobseekers - an increase of 12.7%
compared to June of the previous year. In addition, 394 registrations of non-resident jobseekers were made,
an increase of 69.1% compared to June 2018. At the same time, there has been an increase in ADEM
departures. The increase in arrivals and departures can be explained by the simplified job-seeker registration
procedure introduced by ADEM at the end of 2018.
The number of participants in an employment measure was 4,190 as at 30 June 2019. Seen over one year, this
represents a decrease of 208 persons or 4.7%.
