The Economist has predicted that Iran’s unemployment rate would increase from the last year’s 13.2 percent to 14.1 percent in 2011, ISNA news agency reported.

In its August report, the Economist has said that the country’s workforce would stand at 26.4 million.

The report has also stated that the number of employed persons in Iran would hit 28.4 million in 2014 and the unemployment rate would be 15.5 percent.
