On average, the figure dropped 2 times. Dnipropetrovsk region has some of the best indicators of unemployment (6.8 %) compared with other regions of Ukraine as well as the average national value (8.5 %). On the basis of scoring it is determined that the largest cities (Dnepropetrovsk, Krivoy Rog) are characterized by lower unemployment rates than smaller cities and towns. It is connected with the differences in the development of industry and business data localities. In addition, the special place position monofunctional cities (Yellow Waters, Ternivka, Pershotravnevsk), which the unemployment rate depends on the levelof economic development and functioning of core enterprises.
