The number of jobless enrolled at Portuguese employment centres fell 6.1% in March 2014 compared to the same month last year, with a total of 689,825 people out of work, said the Employment and Vocational Training Institute (IEFP).
The IEFP figures for March, released late last week, also showed unemployment had fallen 1.6% since February, the equivalent of 11,129 fewer jobseekers.
The fall in the numbers was greater for men (-7.4%) than for women (-4.7%).
Youth unemployment still kept on rising however and ended the month 1.6% higher.
