The latest figures released by Statistics Netherlands show another drop in unemployment, for the fourth month in a row.

The number of unemployed fell in June by 11,000 to 441,000.

This puts the average monthly decrease since February this year at around 5,000 a month.

That means 5.6 percent of the working population is out of work, an increase of 56,000 over this time one year ago.
