    Interpretation of the labour market requires a number of different sources of data to be used. There are six main
    sources: the Labour Force Survey (LFS), the Annual Business Inquiry (ABI), the Northern Ireland Quarterly Employment
    Survey (QES), the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), the Annual Population Survey (APS) and the claimant
    count. Problems can arise in drawing together data on the same subject from different sources. For example, the
    question in the LFS as to whether the respondent is employed produces a measure of employment based on the number
    of people, whereas a question addressed to employers asking the number of people they employ, as in the ABI,
    produces a measure of the number of jobs. Thus if someone has a second job they will be included twice. More
    information about the concepts, sources, methods and publications for labour market statistics may be found at:

      www.ons.gov.uk/about-statistics/user-guidance/lm-guide/index.html

    Labour Force Survey (LFS)
    The LFS began in 1973 and is the largest regular household survey in the UK. The concepts and definitions used in the
    LFS are agreed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), an agency of the United Nations. From 1992 the LFS
    was conducted on a seasonal quarter basis. This meant that quarterly results were published for spring (March to May),
    summer (June to August), autumn (September to November) and winter (December to February). In May 2006, the LFS
    changed to collecting information on a calendar quarter basis and the results refer to Quarter 1 (January to March),
    Quarter 2 (April to June), Quarter 3 (July to September) and Quarter 4 (October to December). In this publication the
    period used is usually the second quarter. This has been chosen as two of the months are the same as the spring
    quarter, making the latest tables as comparable as possible with those published previously. However, when comparing
    new versions of tables with previously published spring (or other seasonal quarter) estimates there may be some
    differences caused by seasonal factors. For example, the moving Easter holidays always fell in the spring (March to
    May) quarter but now may occur in either the second quarter (April to June) or, occasionally, in the first quarter (January
    to March).
      www.statistics.gov.uk/cci/article.asp?id=2011
    Latest LFS and APS estimates are consistent with population estimates. Seasonally adjusted estimates are used for
    headline series. They are updated annually to be in line with the latest population estimates, using the interim
    reweighting adjustment methodology developed to take account of the 2001 Census results. Details of this methodology
    were published in an article, which is available on the website at:
     www.statistics.gov.uk/articles/labour_market_trends/Interim_lfs_estimates_Dec2002.pdf
    The APS has replaced the LFS as the preferred source for other regional data.

    Annual Population Survey
    The Annual Population Survey (APS) was introduced in 2004. The APS included all the data of the annual local area
    Labour Force Survey (LFS) in the UK, as well as a further sample boost aimed at achieving a minimum number of
    economically active respondents in the sample in each local authority district in England. This sample boost was
    withdrawn after 2005. The first APS covered the calendar year 2004, rather than the annual local area LFS period of
    March to February. Also, the annual local area LFS data are published only once a year, whereas the APS data are
    published quarterly, with each publication including a year’s data. Like the local area LFS data set, the APS data are
    published by local authority area. However, the APS data contain an enhanced range of variables providing a greater
    level of detail than the LFS about the resident household population of an area, in particular on ethnic group, health and
    sex.

    www.statistics.gov.uk/StatBase/Product.asp?vlnk=14160

    Annual Business Inquiry, Short-term Employment Survey and Quarterly Employment Survey
    The Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) is a sample survey which ran for the first time in 1998 and replaced the Annual
    Employment Survey. The ABI is the only source of employment statistics for Great Britain analysed by local area and by
    detailed industrial classification. The sample is drawn from the Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR), and the
    ABI 2004 sample comprised some 81,000 reporting units. A reporting unit is roughly defined as a combination of local
    units (i.e. individual workplaces with PAYE schemes or registered for VAT) under common ownership. These reporting
    units covered approximately 0.5 million local units and 17.7 million employees (out of a total population of roughly 26.0
    million employees in employment). The ABI results are used to benchmark the monthly/quarterly employment surveys
    (STES) which measure ‘movements’, by region and industrial group, between the annual survey dates.


    The Quarterly Employment Survey (QES) for Northern Ireland is a voluntary survey which covers all employers with at
    least 25 employees, all public sector employers and a representative sample of smaller firms. Data are collected for both
    male and female, full-time and part-time employees. Estimates for Northern Ireland are produced on a quarterly basis
    with unadjusted figures available at the two-digit or division level of the 1992 Standard Industrial Classification and
    seasonally adjusted figures available at a broad sector level.

    Gross weekly earnings
    (Tables 9.19 to 9.22)
    These tables contain some of the regional results of the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings, 2007 which has replaced
    the New Earnings Survey. Fuller details of this are at:
      www.statistics.gov.uk/StatBase/Product.asp?vlnk=13101
    Gross earnings are measured before tax, National Insurance or other deductions. They include overtime pay, bonuses
    and other additions to basic pay but exclude any payments for earlier periods (for example, back pay), income in kind,
    tips and gratuities. Results relate to full-time male and female employees on adult rates whose pay for the survey pay-
    period was not affected by absence.
    Total pay includes basic pay, overtime pay, shift premiums, bonuses, commission, and all other incentive payments.
    Weekly hours are those hours that are paid for and exclude any unpaid overtime.
    Data on weekly earnings and hours shown here are generally classified to the employee’s region of residence. For
    earnings by industry (Table 9.20). The main results of ASHE are reported on the workplace basis however, employees
    were classified to the region in which they worked (or were based if mobile) using postcode information.
    Full-time employees are defined as those who were paid for more than 30 hours per week during the survey pay period
    (or more than 25 hours in the case of teachers).

    Median figures have been used in these tables, where available. These are less affected by extremes of low and highly
    paid people. A median is a value where half of the given population earn less than this amount and half earn more. This
    was introduced in Regional Trends 39 . Previous editions of Regional Trends used means throughout.

    Unemployment and Claimant Count Statistics
    (Tables 9.10, 9.11, 9.12, 9.13, and 9.18)
    The International Labour Organisation (ILO) definition of unemployment is measured through the Labour Force Survey
    and covers those people who are looking for work and are available for work (see Glossary of Terms). An unemployment
    rate is the number of people (in a population group) who are unemployed, as a proportion of the economically active
    people (in the relevant population group) resident in the area concerned (Tables 9.10, 9.12, 9.13 and 9.18).


    Counts of claimants of unemployment-related benefits are also published (Table 9.11). There are advantages and
    disadvantages with both, but the two series are complementary. The claimant count has the advantage of being
    available down to small geographic areas. The disadvantages are that, as it measures only those who are receiving
    unemployment-related benefits, movements over time can be affected by changes in the rules governing entitlement to
    benefit, and its level at any one time is not internationally comparable. These deficiencies are largely overcome by using
    the ILO definition when measuring unemployment, but it too has disadvantages. For example, survey results are subject
    to sampling error (see notes on Labour Force Survey), and unemployment by the ILO definition can be increased by
    government measures to encourage people to seek employment actively or be decreased by measures to put more
    people on government training programmes.
    From 7 October 1996, a new single benefit, the Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), replaced Unemployment Benefit and
    Income Support for unemployed people. People who qualify for JSA through their National Insurance contributions are
    eligible for a personal allowance (known as contribution-based JSA) for a maximum of six months. People who do not
    qualify for contribution-based JSA, or whose needs are not met by it, are able to claim a means-tested allowance (known
    as income-based JSA) for themselves and their dependants for as long as they need it. All those eligible for and claiming
    JSA, as well as those claiming National Insurance credits, continue to be included in the monthly claimant count.


    National and regional claimant count rates are calculated by expressing the number of claimants as a percentage of the
    estimated total workforce (the sum of claimants, employee jobs, self-employment jobs, HM Armed Forces and
    government-supported trainees). These are affected by employees who commute between areas. In order to facilitate
    comparisons between tables in this publication, national and regional claimant count proportions are also presented
    expressing the number of claimants as a proportion of the resident working-age population of the area.


    Qualifications

    other degree level qualifications such as graduate membership of a professional institute.

    Sub-regional labour market data
    (Table 9.18)
    Local area labour market data for Great Britain previously published from the Annual Local Area LFS (LLFS) is now
    obtained from the Annual Population Survey (APS). The APS comprises the quarterly Labour Force Survey (LFS), plus
    data from the annual LLFS boosts for England, Scotland and Wales. Data for April 2005 to March 2006 include a further
    sample boost collected between January 2004 and December 2005 for England only. The size of the total APS sample
    in 2005 was approximately 500,000 people. Following the withdrawal of the England APS boost the sample in 2006
    onwards is about 375,000.

    Northern Ireland data continue to be taken from the Annual Local Area LFS database (LLFS). The sample size is
    approximately 8,100 individuals in Northern Ireland.
    As the LFS is a sample survey the estimates are subject to sampling variability. In general, the smaller the estimate, the
    greater the margin of error as a proportion of the estimate. For small areas such as local authorities, even the annual
    LLFS or APS have small samples. This means that estimates from the APS for these areas are likely to be less reliable
    than those for larger areas since the sampling variability is high. In particular, this affects estimates of unemployment, for
    which estimates have not always been available for the smaller local authority districts. A statistical model was
    developed to provide reliable unemployment estimates for all local authorities in Great Britain. The model uses APS
    data, by age and sex, together with the claimant count to calculate the estimates. The claimant count is an administrative
    measure, and so is known accurately for all areas and is closely related (correlated) with unemployment. Model based
    estimates are constrained to survey estimates at regional level.
    For Northern Ireland modelled unemployment estimates are not available and LLFS unemployment estimates are only
    available for NUTS 3 areas (See Geography Notes and Definitions
    www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_compendia/RegionalSnapshot/rt43-geography-n&f.pdf).


    Glossary of Terms
       Claimant count: A count, derived from administrative sources, of those people who are claiming unemployment-
       related benefits at Jobcentre Plus local offices, primarily Jobseeker’s Allowance.

         Economically active/labour force/workforce: The labour force (otherwise known as the economically active
         population) consists of those in employment plus the unemployed.

         Economic activity rate: The percentage of the population aged 16-64 years which is in the labour force.

         Economically inactive: People who are neither part of the labour force in employment nor unemployed (according
         to the ILO definition – see Unemployed). For example, all people under 16, those retired or looking after a home, or
         those permanently unable to work.
         Employees (Labour Force Survey): A household-based measure of people aged 16 or over who regard
         themselves as paid employees. In this publication, people are counted only once in their main job.

         Employee jobs (Employer Surveys): A measure, obtained from surveys of employers, of jobs held by civilians.
         People with two or more jobs are counted in each job. The term refers to the number of jobs rather than the number
         of persons with jobs. For example, a person holding both a full-time job and a part-time job, or someone with two
         part-time jobs, will be counted twice.

         Employment: People aged 16 or over who did some paid work in the reference week (whether as an employee or
         self-employed); those who had a job that they were temporarily away from (on holiday, for example); those on
         government-supported training and employment programmes; and those doing unpaid family work.

         Employment rate: The percentage of the population aged 16-64 years which is in the labour force.

         Unemployed: An International Labour Organisation (ILO) recommended measure, used in household surveys such
         as the LFS, which counts as unemployed those aged 16 or over who are without a job, are available to start work in
         the next two weeks and who have been seeking a job in the last four weeks, or were waiting to start a job already
         obtained in the next two weeks.

         Unemployment rate: The percentage of the economically active who are unemployed.

         Self-employed: A household-based measure (from the Labour Force Survey) of people aged 16 or over who regard
         themselves as self-employed in their main job.
         Workforce jobs: A measure of employee jobs (obtained from employer surveys), self-employment jobs (obtained
         from the Labour Force Survey), all HM Forces, and government-supported trainees (obtained from the Department
         for Business, Innovation and Skills and its Scottish and Welsh counterparts).

2 These figures are derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn
2007. Consequently the estimates are not entirely consistent with the other figures in the table which are published in the monthly
Labour Market Statistics First Release and are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.
