It left the unemployment rate at 14.6% which is down 0.2% on a year ago. 

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) says the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate from the most recent Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) was 14.8% in the 3rd-quarter of 2012.

Unadjusted figures

In unadjusted terms there were 417,277 people signing on the Live Register in November which represents an annual decrease of 12,290 or 2.9%.

It adds that the trend in the overall Live Register "continues to be one of movement within a small range".

The number of male claimants decreased by 10,156 to 266,370 over the year and female claimants decreased by 2,134 to 150,907. 

Taoiseach Enda Kenny has told the Dáil the figures are heading in the right direction.
