Greece had the highest rate of unemployment in the European Union with 24 percent in December 2015, according to data released on Monday by the bloc’s statistical authority Eurostat.

The figure was still down from 24.4 percent in November last year, the data showed.

Eurostat’s figures show that 1.150.000 men and women in Greece were unemployed in December, compared to 1.169.000 the previous month.
