The European Union’s unemployment rate stood at 6.3% in October, the bloc’s statistical office reported on Friday.

The figure was unchanged from the previous month, while it dropped from 6.7% in the same month last year, Eurostat said in a press release.

It said the figure was the lowest rate seen in the EU28 since the start of the EU monthly unemployment series in January 2000.

“The euro area (EA19) seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.5% in October, down from 7.6% in September and from 8.0% in October 2018,” the statistical office said.
