How the Past Few Months Impacted the Unemployment Rates Across the World

The year 2020 so far seems to be a unique year for everyone on the globe. Its the first time since the industrial revolution that entire countries and economies froze still. A freeze that may had benefited certain individuals, but when looking at it from a general perspective, had major consequences in the long term.

To analyze these consequences we took 3 economical indicators – Unemployment Rate, Inflation Rate and GDP Growth Rate and compared their last published rate with the one before.

In the chart below you can see the different indicators per country. if a certain indicator is missing that’s because we couldn’t find an updated level from the past 3 months.
