China's 2013 urban unemployment rate at 4.1 %
Beijing: Over 13 million jobs were created in China in 2013 while the urban unemployment rate in the world's second largest economy stood at around 4.1 percent.

The unemployment rate edged up to 4.05 percent at the end of the fourth quarter from 4.04 percent at the end of the third quarter, the Chinese Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security said today.

A total of 13.1 million new jobs were created in urban areas last year, and 5.66 million people were re-employed, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
