In the study we deal with two key indicators of economic development, which are economic growth and unemployment. We focus on their theoretical and practical aspects. We analyze their relationship and focus on its development in SR. The main part of the study is evaluation of the relationship between economic growth and unemployment on the basis of Okun’s law in the SR and comparison of these results with other members of EU. The last chapter contains prognosis of unemployment rate development, created on the basis of the equation derived from Okun’s law for SR.
