UNEMPLOYMENT in Spain has fallen to a record-breaking eight-year-low.
3,382,324 people are currently registered as unemployed, a figure that has previously risen above four million.
The past year has seen a decrease in unemployment figure of more than 300,000.
Despite an increase of almost 15,000 in those without work in August as the peak tourist season dwindles down, the figures remain positive annually.
The majority of new jobs created this year were in health and social services as well as the hospitality industry.
Education, construction and manufacturing numbers declined though, statistically, they recover again in September.
