Mexico: Seasonal factors drive the unemployment rate sharply down in December

  • The jobless rate fell 57bps to 3.80%, aided by a seasonal effect. 95.0k jobs were lost, more modest than the average

  • In our opinion, today’s report was very favorable, signaling that the recovery of the labor market continued

  • However, conditions are still fragile, with higher short-term risks due to worsening epidemiological conditions
