While the mayor of Cádiz, José María González ‘Kichi’, you are concerned about vox demonstrations, that a Cadiz avenue is called Juan Carlos I or that the Cádiz stadium is called Ramon de Carranza, the people of Cadiz continue worried because they remain at the forefront of unemployment in Spain, with an unemployment rate of 25.5%, very far from the 15.2% of the country as a whole or 21.5% in Andalusia.
And that the unemployment registered by the Andalusian Employment Service (SAE) in the province of Cádiz has dropped in 14,137 people during the month of July, which represents an 8.8% decrease in percentage terms. Thus, the total number of unemployed persons registered in the employment offices of the province stands at 146,358 people. A fall that, however, does not prevent Cádiz from continuing to be one of the provinces with the highest unemployment in our country, next to Ceuta Las Palmas and Santa Cruz.
The Board has highlighted that the situation is due to two factors: the hiring experienced by the service sector due to the summer season, something that especially affects the most touristy provinces such as Cádiz; and technical adjustments in the accounting for unemployment, because since the end of May the automatic renewal of job applications by the SAE ended, which allows the data on registered unemployment to be better adapted to the real situation of the applicants.
July It is the fifth consecutive month of drop in registered unemployment in the province of Cadiz. With the unemployment data for the month of February, in the last five months (March, April, May, June and July), Cádiz has reduced its number of registered unemployed by almost 43,000 people, exactly in 42.889.
By gender of the applicants, over the last month unemployment fell to a greater extent among women than among men. Unemployment is cut in July to 8,324 women in the province of Cadiz, while the reduction in the case of men was 5,813 fewer unemployed workers.
By age group, including both genders, unemployment fell, especially among young people from a percentage point of view compared to the evolution of the same group in the previous month (-16.2% unemployment for young people than in June).
In quantitative terms, unemployment by groups decreased as follows: 2,165 fewer unemployed persons for those under 25 years of age; 7,514 fewer unemployed for those between 25-44 years old; and 4,458 fewer unemployed people for those over 44.
The biggest drop is in services, with 9,625 applicants less than the previous month. In this way, they accumulate 68 percent of the total unemployment cut in Cádiz this July: seven out of every ten people who leave unemployment in the last month are from the services sector. Likewise, unemployment among people without employment prior to their enrollment in the SAE has decreased, a group that closed July with 2,899 fewer unemployed people than in June.
From a year-on-year comparison, unemployment fell by 19,590 people, which means 11.8% less unemployment during the last 12 months. This is the largest interannual decrease (-19,590) of all the months that appear in the historical series for Cádiz. Insufficient, yes, to get out of the ranking of unemployed.
The groups that benefited the most from the year-on-year decrease are, above all, women; people between 25-44 years old; and workers from the service sector. The interannual unemployment falls in all sectors and population groups in the province of Cadiz.
The territorial delegate for Employment, Training, Self-Employment, Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities of the Board in Cádiz, Alberto Cremades, has explained that compared to February 2020, there are 4,409 less unemployed in July than then.
In this regard, the territorial delegate for Employment has valued the recovery of employment lost during the months of the pandemic, although without forgetting that “the data is highly influenced by its comparison with a period of strong job destruction”, derived from the health pandemic.
