Tijuana, Baja California.- The unemployment rate in Tijuana closed 2012 with 7.4 percent of the Economically Active Population, the same level recorded in the previous quarter, according to an analysis by the Center for Economic Studies of Tijuana to the National Survey of Occupation and Employment.

In the fourth quarter of the ended year there were 46,214 unemployed people, a lower figure from the previous quarter (47,546).

The unemployment rate, according to the CET, despite holding steady, still stands above its normal level by about one percent, although IMSS's data shows that last year this municipality registered the best performance in formal employment, which is a component of the ENOE, that includes informal workers and legal workers in the U.S.

Furthermore, the rate recorded in the last quarter of 2012 is higher than the same period of 2011 when it was placed at 5.6 percent.

Finally, we should mention that Tijuana recorded the highest rate among the cities of the north in ENOE's survey, which had the following records: Chihuahua 5.8%, Hermosillo 5.5%, Monterrey 5.5%, Saltillo 5.2 % and Tampico 5.4 percent.
