Mr. Clappison: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions pursuant to the answer of 22 July 2008, Official Report, column 1180W, on employment, what the figures are for the second quarter of 2008 on the same basis as the figures contained in the Answer. 
|Quarter 2 2008|
|(i) Employment r ate (percentage)||(ii) Working age employment||(iii)16+ Employment|
1. Figures are rounded to the nearest 10,000.
2. The figures provided in the tables are not seasonally adjusted. This means direct comparisons between different quarters are not possible.
3. Nationals from all 27 member states (excluding UK) are included in EU figures.
4. The totals for foreign nationals may not be equal to the sum of the corresponding numbers shown for EU and non-EU nationals due to rounding.
5. As these figures are based on a sample survey they are also subject to sampling variability.
6. It should be noted that the nationality question in the LFS is an undercount because:
a. it excludes those who have not been resident in the UK for six months;
b. it excludes students in halls who do not have a UK resident parent;
c. it excludes people in most other types of communal establishments (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites, etc);
d. it is grossed to population estimates that only include migrants staying for 12 months or more.
7. Column (i) refers to the employment rate of working age people, that is the employment level of the working age population as a proportion of the total working age population. Column (ii) refers to the employment level of people of working age, females aged 16-59 and males aged 16-64. Column (iii) refers to the employment level of people aged 16 or over.
