MANILA, Philippines—Here’s the good news: the number of jobless Filipinos went down partly due to election-related activities.
The bad news is that the underemployment rate went up, data from the January 2010 Labor Force Survey showed.
The National Statistics Office (NSO) Tuesday reported that the number of unemployed dropped by about 100,000 in the first month of the year, compared to the same period in 2009.
