Unemployment down in Poland

Poland's jobless rate inches down to 11.5 percent in February

Poland's Central Statistics Office says the nation's jobless rate inched down to 11.5 percent in February, from 11.7 percent in January.

The slight decline shows that people are taking public service jobs and other positions after doing job training and internships, the state-run office said Wednesday.

It says some 1.77 million people in this nation of 38 million were registered as jobless at the end of February, compared to 1.81 million in January.

Poland's unemployment rate has declined gradually since a 20.7 percent peak in February 2003.
