Video PlayerClose BEIJING, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) — China’s job market remained generally stable in the first 11 months of the year, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Monday. A total of 12.79 million new urban jobs were created during the period, exceeding this year’s target of creating over 11 million urban jobs, according to the bureau. The surveyed urban unemployment rate nationwide stood at 5.1 percent last month, unchanged from the rate in October. The surveyed unemployment rate among the people aged between 25 and 59, the majority of the labor market, stayed unchanged at 4.6 percent last month. Meanwhile, the surveyed urban unemployment rate of 31 major cities was 5.1 percent in November, flat with that in October, said the NBS. The surveyed urban unemployment rate is calculated based on the number of unemployed people who have participated in the employment survey in urban areas, including migrant workers in cities. It was first introduced in 2014 to better reflect the job market and serve as a supplement to the registered urban unemployment rate compiled by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
