The number of unemployed people who registered with the Israel Employment Service dropped to 20,800 in September, a decline of 11.6 percent from the parallel month of 2005. The Employment Service said September saw 3.9%, or 848, fewer registrations at its offices countrywide than in August as the North was the only region to record a month-to-month rise due to the war. Some 3,789 residents of the North registered in September, 30.1% more than in August and 23.3% more than September 2005. Jerusalem was the only other branch to report a year-over-year rise as 221 job seekers were added since last September. Compared to August, the number of Jerusalem job seekers fell 7.5%.
