Countries with higher unemployment were Spain, Cyprus, Croatia, Portugal, Italy, Slovakia and France, while data for some countries was not available for July 2015.
The EU average unemployment was 9.5% in July, which is the lowest indicator since June 2011. The figure was 10.2% a year ago.
No data for this period were available for Estonia, Greece, the UK and Hungary.
According to the State Employment Agency (NVA), the unemployment level in Latvia was 8.6% of economically active citizens at the end of July, showing no change since May.
Eurostat data differ from NVA data as different criteria are employed; for example, the NVA counts unemployed people from 15 to 62 years - the age of retirement in Latvia - while Eurostat takes into account people from 15 to 74 of age.
