Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The German Federal Statistic Bureau published for the first time the unemployment rate and employment/population ratio following ILO guidelines for January 2005 here:

http://www.destatis.de/presse/englisch/pm2005/p0890031.htm

Following these guidelines, probably closer to American guidelines, unemployment in Germany in January 2005 would have been around 9,4%, the employment/population ratio 67.5.

They´ve got a better (and newer ) overview on another page (in German) from January till June.

I used the German numbers in comparison with US ones for an argument here.
