The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics of unemployment from the Labour Force Survey following International Labour Organisation definitions. Estimates of unemployment are not available for wards as the survey sample size for such areas is too small.
However, ONS also compiles statistics for local areas of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance. Table 1 shows statistics for the number of claimants expressed as a percentage of the resident working age population for the Kingston upon Hull North constituency for the years 1997 to 2005. Comparable percentages for constituency wards of Kingston upon Hull North are only available from February 2004. Table 2 shows these statistics for the months available to date.
|Date||Annual average percentage|
|Orchard Park and Greenwood||9.4||9.2||8.9||8.8||8.5||8.5||8.7||8.9||8.4||8.4||8.1|
|Orchard Park and Greenwood||8.8||94||9.1||9.8||9.6||9.7||9.7||9.5||9.3||9.9|
