Malaga was the only province in Andalucía where unemployment increased in November, latest data from the Seguridad Social registers shows.

But the performance of the labour market in other Andalusian provinces has been strong due to the olive harvest and a general decline in unemployment in the services sector. The region ended November with 8,852 fewer people unemployed compared to October.

Nationally, 11,500 jobs were lost in November but unemployment fell by almost 24,600 people, with 20.8 million enrolled onto Spain's social security.
