The growth of claimant unemployment by broad occupation and area

Key

Key findingsThe growth in claimant count unemployment rate has varied across England and Wales. Thebiggest increases have been recorded in the West Midlands, south Wales and Yorkshire, but also intowns across the south (like Swindon and Harlow) and the East Midlands (Corby andWellingborough).Different parts of the workforce have been hardest hit in different areas. Unemployment amongstpeople in skilled trades has grown notably in the North West and areas where engineering is asignificant employer (in the West Midlands, Darlington and South Tyneside, for example).Unemployment growth has been greatest in absolute terms for people looking for less skilled work,and particularly in older industrial areas. But unemployment amongst managers has also grown,and this has been most marked in the commuter belt around London. Unemployment amongstprofessionals has grown least in absolute terms but significantly in percentage terms, with thehighest increases recorded in a range of London boroughs.Different places are experiencing the recession differently, which argues for tailored measures toaddress specific local effects.IntroductionThis report examines how unemployment has changed over the past year at local authority districtlevel. It uses statistics on the number of people claiming Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) as aproportion of resident population of working age. As explained below, this is not the only measureof unemployment, but is more timely and more reliable than the main alternative at the districtlevel.The tables and the maps show the percentage point changes in the unemployment rate over thelast year. For example, they show that Blaenau Gwent’s unemployment rate increased by 3.79percentage points over the year to April, while Ceredigion’s rose by 0.62 percentage points. Thereasons for choosing this measure are discussed at the end of the report.The report also examines the change in unemployment according to the usual occupation ofclaimants. It concentrates on four groups – managers, professionals, those in skilled trades andthose in ‘elementary’ occupations (such as labourers, cleaners and catering assistants). It shows thatthe geographical distribution of rising unemployment varies amongst these groups.2
