ONS Labour Force Survey (LFS)
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give a break down of the number of people in employment in (a) each region and (b) each local authority area who were (i) UK citizens, (ii) citizens of other EU states and (iii) citizens of non-EU states in (A) spring 2004 and (B) Quarter 2 2007. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking for a break down of the number of people in employment in (a) each region and (b) each local authority area who were (i) UK citizens, (ii) citizens of other EU states and (iii) citizens of non-EU states in (A) spring 2004 and (B) Quarter 2 2007. I am replying in her absence. (177482).
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics of employment for local areas from the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation definitions.
The National Statistics method for estimating the number of migrant workers employed in the UK is based on the number of people at a given time who were born abroad, are of working age (16 - 64 for men, 16 - 59 for women), and in employment. However, you have requested data analysed by nationality and this is the basis on which this PQ has been answered.
It is important to bear in mind that the APS is not designed to cover everyone who is present in the UK. The survey may undercount the numbers of people who are foreign nationals. The reasons are set out in the table footnote.
The APS estimates at this detailed level are only available consistent with population estimates published in February and March 2003 and are not comparable with the estimates published in the Labour Market Statistics First Release on 14 November 2007, which are based on latest population estimates.
Tables 1 and 2, attached, shows estimates for the 12 month periods ending in March 2005 and June 2007 from the APS. Table 1 shows the number of working age employed persons in each Government Office region by nationality. Table 2 shows the number of working age employed persons in each local authority by nationality. Copies of the tables have been placed in the House of Commons Library.
These estimates, as with any from sample surveys, are subject to a margin of uncertainty. Changes in the estimates over time should be treated with particular caution.
