Spanish jobs’ website, InfoJobs, reckons that unemployment in the Balearics will be 21.6% in 2016 and fall to 19.7% in 2017. Were this to be the case, then the Balearics would have the fifth highest unemployment rate in the country next year behind Andalusia (forecast to be 29%), Extremadura, the Canaries and Castile-La Mancha. In 2017, the Balearics would drop to sixth, with Murcia moving into fifth with a rate similar to that predicted for 2016 (21.5%). Unemployment in other regions is also forecast to fall, the national leader, Andalusia, having a rate of 26.7% by 2017.
Balearic unemployment will fall over the next two years
