Abstract: The paper deals with the analysis of the employment rate. The au­thor analyses this indicator in Slovakia regions using the data in the period 2013 – 2022. The analysis of the trend uses relative characteristics of time se­ries analysis – growth rate, and average growth rate. The purpose of the pa­per is to find out the uniformity, respectively variability of growth rate using absolute geometric deviation and average absolute geometric deviation. The author quantifies absolute changes, relative changes and parallel absolute and relative changes by difference rate.

The employment rate in the Košice region increased the most in 2022 com­pared to 2021 by 5.78%. The trend was the most uniform in Bratislava and Prešov regions. When comparing the years 2022 and 2013 using the difference rate, the employment rate in the Žilina region increased the most, absolute­ly by 15.3 percentage points, relatively by 26.24%, in the case of a combined comparison by 3.5656.
