Figures Reveal 14,000 Drop In Unemployment
Unemployment in Scotland has fallen by 14,000 in three months, official figures show.
Data for July to September reveals that 129,000 people were out of work during that period.
The unemployment rate now stands at 4.7%, just below the rate of 4.8% recorded for the UK as a whole.
While unemployment fell, figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that employment also dropped by 25,000 over the same spell.
The number of those in work in Scotland stands at 2,604,000.
The Scottish Government said there are now 40,000 more people in employment than at the pre-recession peak in 2008.
But the UK Government said the employment rate, now ``lagging behind'' the UK, should be a concern to Scottish ministers.
