Spain’s unemployment rate has dropped to 22.4 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

The National Statistics Institute said yesterday that the number of people out of work dropped by 295,600 between April and June for a rounded total of 5.1 million.

The rate was 23.8 percent in the first quarter. Unemployment soared after 2008 because of the financial crisis but the economy resumed steady growth last year.
