Fast Comment Norway — Preview LFS unemployment and Norges Bank

    We expect the survey unemployment rate (LFS) fell to 3.8 percent in AugustUnemployment (both registered and survey) has basically levelled out this year. The LFS unemployment rate has hovered around 3.9-4.0 percent since January, and it was also 4 percent in July (three months of June-August). The performance so far has been weaker than anticipated by Norges Bank, and in its September Monetary Policy Report, Norges Bank had to make upward adjustments to its near-term unemployment outlook.
