January figures from Statistics Denmark show a drop of 900 in the number of unemployed in Denmark to 160,000 or six per cent.

Overall, unemployment has dropped by 4,500 since August last year.

“Certainly the positive surprise of the year,” says Nykredit Markets Senior Economist Tore Stramer.

“Based on the fall-off in growth that hit the Danish economy at the beginning of 2011 and the increasing financial market unrest, we had expected unemployment to continue to rise,” he says, but adds the figures are perhaps just a brief respite.

“Market barometers show companies considerably having reduced their employment expectations over the past year, and falling employment is expected across the board in coming months,” he says.

Nykredit Markets expects a rise in unemployment of some 15,000 towards the end of the year.
