About This Report:
The monthly Unemployment Bulletin provides data on number and rate of Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) claimants across Leicester Shire.
The JSA claimant data in this bulletin is available down to ward level. The JSA data is also available broken down by the detailed ethnic groups down to Local Authority level.
An additional front page provides a visual monthly snapshot of the current economic climate at a local level. JSA claimants and notified vacancies data are used to exemplify recent change and trends over the past 12 months. Following tables have also been adapted to include monthly and annual comparisons.
The population figures used to calculate residence-based proportions (rates) have changed from working age (16-59f/64m) to aged 16-64 for both males and females. This change affects rates for July 2010 so rates are not currently comparable to previous dates.
