Poland's unemployment dropped to 5.2% in April, from 5.4% in March, and easing from a nine-month high of 5.5% in February and January, the Warsaw-based Central Statistical Office (GUS) said in a statement on Thursday.
The reading was a notch lower than an earlier estimate of 5.3% for April issued by the government.
There were around 821,900 people without jobs across the nation at the end of April, compared with 846,900 a month earlier, according to GUS.
The statistics agency reported earlier this month that employment in Polish companies rose 0.4% in April on average in year-on-year terms.
