Coventry and Warwickshire Labour Market Summary

The latest quarterly Summary shows that the number of Job Seekers Allowance claimants has fallen again and now stands at 17,904.  This is 1,104 less than in June 2011.  The biggest fall at a district level in Warwickshire over the last three months was in Stratford on Avon District.  When expressed as a percentage of the working age population claimant rates continue to be highest in Coventry and lowest in Stratford on Avon – however the rates in Coventry and all the districts and Boroughs in Warwickshire have also fallen. 

The number of notified vacancies is now 9,037, a rise of just over 2,000 since March.  Just under a fifth of the vacancies were for care assistants and home carers. 

The full report, including more detailed information on out of work benefits and the top 10 JSA & worklessness rates by ward, can be accessed via this link: Labour Market Summary – July 2012

  1. I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD FURTHER DEFINE THE FIGURES UNDER THE HEAD OF WORKLESSNESS ? WHAT IS THE RANGE OF WORKLESSNESS? DOES IT INCORPORATE ONLY
    PEOPLE OF NON RETIREMENT AGE SEEKING EMPLOYMENT? IF NOT…. WHAT OTHER CATEGORIES DOES IT INCLUDE AND THEIR PROPORTIONS? I AM PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN CAMP HILL NUNEATON.

  2. Worklessness is made up of the following benefits – job seekers allowance, employment support allowance & incapacity benefits, lone parent and other benefits which include bereaved, disabled and carers allowance. The figures used in this section of the Report are for people of working age, i.e. aged 16-64. The percentages of claimants on each type of benefit are shown in the chart on the same page, titled benefit claimants by type and area.
