Brazil's Unemployment Rate Fell in October

Brazil's unemployment rate fell in the three-month period through October as the number of self-employed workers continued to grow, the country's statistics agency said Thursday.

Joblessness was 12.2% in the period, down from 12.4% in the three months through September but up from 11.8% in the same period a year earlier.
