3.42 million Germans were unemployed over 2009. That's a fact, as German unemployment averaged 8.2 percent in 2009.
There is an increase seen from 2008’s unemployment rate which was 7.8 percent. The exports increased in October when the economy had started rising from the recessionary pressures and the German economy also expanded 0.7 percent in the three months ending September.
"Unemployment should continue to increase until mid-2010 and should peak at around 3.8 million", an economist forecasts, which he noted would be well below the peak of 5.2 million generated by Germany's last recession in 2002-2003.
In October, the unemployment rates in other countries were also devastating, which was 10.1 percent in France, 8 percent in Italy, 8.6 percent in Canada and 10.2 percent in the U. S.
