"The overall unemployment rate in the Cayman Islands was 4.7 percent in 2014."

The overall unemployment rate in the Cayman Islands was 4.7 percent in 2014. The unemployment rate among Caymanians was estimated at 7.9 percent, this is lower than the 9.4 percent recorded in 2013 and for non-Caymanians the rate was 1.5% down from 3.1% in 2013.
