The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics of unemployment from the Labour Force Survey following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions. Table 1 attached, shows estimates of the number unemployed in the UK as a whole, aged 16 and over for the three month period ending in August, for the years 19752005.
Estimates of unemployment consistent with the ILO definition are not available for wards as the sample size of surveys for such areas is too small. However ONS compiles statistics of Job Seeker's Allowance claimants for wards.
For the years 1996 to 2004, Table 2 gives annual averages of the number of JSA claimants resident in each ward in the Vale of Clwyd Parliamentary Constituency. Comparable information for the wards on consistent boundaries is not available for years prior to 1996.
