The 2019 annual average for the number of persons receiving unemployment benefit
assistance was 267 885
The average amount per day in 2019 was €32.81 in case of unemployment benefit and €27.01 in case of unemployment assistance. The gender-specific difference has decreased over time, but because of continuing differences in earnings, the average daily amount for women is still significantly lower than that for men: in 2019 the daily amount received by women was 84.3% (unemployment benefit) and 88.7% (unemployment assistance) respectively of that received by men, while in 1990 the figure was just 75.3% (unemployment benefit) and 76.8% (unemployment assistance) respectively.
