Poland’s Central Statistical Office (GUS) reported last month that the country’s unemployment rate fell to a new 28-year low of 5.7 percent in September, from 5.8 percent in August.

According to the EU’s Eurostat statistics agency, which uses a different methodology, joblessness in Poland dropped to 3.4 percent in August, the second-lowest rate in the 28-member European Union.
