In a still photo, last month offers a very uneven panorama among the Spanish provinces. The vast majority managed to increase the number of employed people compared to February, but to a much lesser extent than a year ago. This economic slowdown has been particularly severe in five provinces, which have been unable to take advantage of March’s traditional pull for the labor market and last month destroyed jobs instead of creating them. It was the case of Jaén, which has lost 14,474 employees in the last month; May 2019 Calendar Australia, which has destroyed 955 jobs; Ciudad Real, which has struck 911 jobs; Toledo, which has lost 373 employees compared to those it had in February; and Castellón, which has destroyed 217 during the last month. Spain received 4.4 million international tourists in February, 3.8% more than in the same month of 2018, according to the provisional data of the Survey of Tourist Movements in Border (Frontur) prepared by the National Institute of Statistics ( INE).

Specifically, during the second month of the year, the expense of international tourists in their trips to Spain has reached 4,667 million euros, with an increase of 2.9% over the same month of 2018, according to the Survey of Tourist Expense (Egatur) also published this Tuesday by Statistics. The average expenditure per tourist in the second month of the year was 1,066 euros, with an annual decrease of 0.6%, while the average daily expenditure grew by 5%, to 148 euros. The United Kingdom, with 883,757 tourists, has remained the first issuing market in February, with an increase of 2.3% over the same month of 2018. It has been followed by France, with 562,186 tourists and a rise of 3.1%, and Germany, with 549,011 visitors, 2.4% more.
May 2019 Calendar Australia is the first main destination for foreign tourists arriving in Spain, with almost 1.2 million visitors, 1.1% less that in February 2018. Then there is Catalonia, with just over one million (+ 1.4%), and Andalusia, with 626,424 tourists (+ 8%). Registered unemployment in the offices of the Public Employment Services has only been reduced by 33,956 workers compared to the month of February, the lowest rate since 2014. In year-on-year terms, unemployment has fallen by 167,467 people in the third month of the year compared to Same month of the previous year, with a year-on-year reduction rate of 4.89%. Also in this comparison you can see the fall in the pace of unemployment reduction, the lowest since 2014 as well. Thus, the total number of unemployed has stood at 3,255,084. In seasonally adjusted terms, unemployment decreased in the same month by 12,692 people compared to the previous month.
