Unemployment in Russia in the spring of 2021

The national average, in March-May 2021, the unemployment rate was 5.2%: slightly lower than in the corresponding period of 2020 (then it was 5.5%)

The highest unemployment was recorded in Ingushetia: an impressive 31.7%. It is clear that statistics in many regions of the Caucasus are quite creative, but the figure is still very high. In Tuva, which is in second place, it is noticeably lower: “only” 18.4%. And then – the Caucasus again: 17.3% in Chechnya, 16.1% in Dagestan, and so on. Outside these regions, the worst situation with unemployment was in Altai (13.2%), in Buryatia (10%) and Transbaikalia (9.5%)

Least of all problems with finding a job in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and St. Petersburg: the unemployment rate is only 2.3%. The figures are slightly higher in the Khabarovsk Territory (2.6%), Tatarstan and Chukotka (2.7% each)
