TOKYO: Japan's jobless rate rose to 2.8 per cent in November, while the availability of jobs matched that of the previous month, government data showed on Tuesday (Dec 28).

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate compared with 2.7 per cent in October and a median forecast of 2.7 per cent in a Reuters poll of economists.

The jobs-to-applicants ratio was 1.15 in November, labour ministry data showed, unchanged from the previous month and lower than a Reuters poll forecast of 1.16.
