The results are not only an indication of the deteriorated employment outlook in Spain but also of pressures due to the collapse in housing and shares as well as a loss of confidence by consumers.

The greatest falls are expected in the Canary Islands (-6%), Cantabria (-5.1%), Extremedura (-5%) and Navarra (-5%).
