SANTIAGO, March 28 (Reuters) - Chile’s jobless rate for December to February unexpectedly rose to 6.2 percent due to a drop in domestic, teaching and retail jobs, the statistics agency said on Thursday.

The unemployment rate was forecast to have remained at 6.0 percent, the six-year low it hit in the November-January period, according to the median response of 10 analysts and economists polled by Reuters.
