Greek quarterly unemployment falls for first time in almost four years

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's jobless rate dropped slightly to 27.1 percent in the second quarter of 2013 from 27.4 percent in the previous three-month period as economic activity slumped, the country's statistics service said on Thursday.

It was the first drop in quarterly unemployment since the third quarter of 2009 but still near a record level hit in the first quarter.

Greece has already published monthly unemployment figures up to June, which differ from quarterly figures because they are based on different samples.
