The eurozone's unemployment rate hit a new record high in October, while consumer price rises slowed sharply.
The jobless rate in the recessionary euro area rose to 11.7%. Inflation fell from 2.5% to 2.2% in November.
The European Central Bank president, Mario Draghi, has warned the eurozone will not emerge from its crisis until the second half of next year.
