SANTIAGO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Chile's rolling three-monthly unemployment rate CLUNR=ECI eased for a second consecutive month to 12.3% in July through September, the government said on Friday.

The improvement in the unemployment rate beat the 12.9% prediction of the market, but remained above the same period the previous year as the coronavirus pandemic continued to weigh on the economy.
