The rate might rise this month, as people tend to seek new jobs after the Lunar New Year holiday, a trend disrupted last year by COVID-19, the agency said

The nation’s unemployment rate last month dropped to 3.66 percent, falling for the sixth straight month, as fewer people quit their jobs, but slightly more than left seasonal or temporary positions, the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS) said yesterday.

The rate was the lowest in 12 months, but remained at a four-year high for January, as the job market has not yet fully recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic, DGBAS Deputy Director Chen Hui-hsin (陳惠欣) told a media briefing.
