Coventry and Warwickshire Labour Market Summary

Warwickshire Observatory have just completed the final Labour Market Sumary for 2011/2012.  This is compiled on a quarterly basis and gives headline details on a range of economic data including Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) claimants, vacancies and worklessness. 

The number of JSA claimants was at its highest in August 2011 when 20,141 people were claiming.  In the last quarter the numbers rose in both January and February before falling again in March to 19,464.  The number of notified vacancies has fluctuated throughout the year, reaching their highest in October 2011.  In March the number was just under 7,000.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough still has the highest number of claimants per vacancy.  In the last quarter the figure rose in four of the six areas, only falling in Stratford-on-Avon.
