Unemployment rises marginally

The Dutch official unemployment rate reached 4.4% between January and March, up from 4.1% between December and February, the national statistics office CBS said on Thursday.

Men aged up to 45 dominate the increase, the CBS said. The jobless rate among women and older men is still lower now than it was a year ago.
