Spain unemployment rate up again to 20.3 pct

The government says Spain's unemployment rate rose back above the 20 percent level in the fourth quarter, to 20.3 percent, the highest since 1997.
That compares to about 19.8 in the third quarter, already the highest in the eurozone.
The figures released Friday by the National Statistics Institute show Spain's unemployment rate has now risen for four straight years.
In the last quarter of 2010 the number of unemployed people increased by 121,900 to nearly 4.7 million.
The jobless rate was above 20 percent for all of 2010 except for the small drop in the third quarter to 19.8 percent.
