Unemployment rate in Venezuela stood at 5.9% in December, a 0.7% slump below the same term in 2011, based on a report on labor prepared by the National Statistics Institute (INE).

In absolute terms, this means 806,496 jobless last month. In December 2011, unemployment rate stood at 6.5%, that is, 885,149 people.

Last month featured 12,932,816 people with a job, including 7,503,251, or 58% in the formal sector of economy. The remainder -5,428,791- works on their own or as street vendors.

In the meantime, unemployment in December accounted for 35.5%, which is tantamount to 7,577,545 people. Such profile pools the individuals who opted to study, or engaged in housekeeping, or claimed to be unable to work.

But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
