China's average surveyed urban unemployment rate stood at 5.7 percent in the first four months of this year, official data showed Monday.

A total of 4.06 million new urban jobs were created during the period, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

In April alone, China's surveyed urban unemployment rate was 6.1 percent, up 0.3 percentage points from March. The rate among those aged between 25 and 59, the majority of the labor market, stood at 5.3 percent.

The surveyed unemployment rate in 31 major cities came in at 6.7 percent in April, according to the data.

The surveyed urban unemployment rate is calculated based on the number of unemployed people who have participated in the employment survey in urban areas, including migrant workers in cities.

China aims to create over 11 million new urban jobs and keep a surveyed urban unemployment rate of no more than 5.5 percent in 2022, according to a government work report.
