The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics of unemployment from the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation definitions.
Table 1, attached, shows the numbers unemployed and the unemployment rates for youth and adult males and females in the Glasgow East constituency for the 12 months ending March 2007 (the latest period for which data are available). The unemployment rate is defined as the number unemployed as the percentage of the number of economically active persons in the age and sex group of interest. Table 1 also shows the number unemployed as the percentage of all persons in the age and sex group. In this table youth is defined as those aged 16 to 24 and adult refers to those aged 25 or more.
As these estimates are for a subset of the population in a small geographical area, they are based on small sample sizes, and are therefore subject to large margins of uncertainty.
ONS also compiles statistics for local areas on numbers of claimants of Jobseeker's Allowance (ISA). Table 2, attached, shows the average numbers of young and adult males and females resident in the Glasgow East constituency, claiming JSA between April 2006 and March 2007.
Table 2 also shows the numbers of young and adult males and females claiming JSA in September 2007 (the latest period for which data are available). For JSA claimants, youth is defined as those aged 18 to 24, and adult refers to those aged 25 or more.
