Unemployment

The monthly headline unemployment figure is taken from the claimant count data series. Unemployment levels are compared with the same month in the previous year because of seasonal variation in the labour market.
Please note - From April 2017 onwards Ward level data is based on 2015 Wards, with the implementation of new Wards in Erewash and new codes in High Peak. The denominator at all geographies is Mid Year Estimates 2015.
