Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the number of inward migrants to the UK intending to stay for 12 months or more who cited work-related purposes as the main reason for migration in (a) each year for which figures are available and (b) each quarter since 2004. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to respond to your question concerning what estimate has been made of the number of inward migrants to the UK intending to stay for 12 months or more who cited work-related purposes as the main reason for migration in each year for which figures are available and for each quarter since 2004. (227937)
Table 1, attached, gives an estimate of international immigration for work-related reasons between 1977 and 2006. For all years apart from 1995, these estimates include migrants with a definite job to go to and those who are looking for work. Table 2 provides quarterly estimates since 2004.
Both tables are based solely on data from the International Passenger Survey.
|Table 1: Migration for work related reasonsTime series 1977-2006 International Migration, estimates from the International Passenger Survey inflow United Kingdom|
Work related reasons includes migrants with a Definite job and those Looking for Work. For 1995 only, estimates of those Looking for work were included in Other reasons for migration.

The figures for 2007 are provisional and may change slightly when data for the full 2007 calendar year are published.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many people living in (a) Westmorland and Lonsdale and (b) Cumbria were unemployed in each of the last 12 months. (227841)
The Office for National Statistics compiles unemployment statistics for local areas using the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions.
The APS estimates for Westmorland and Lonsdale and Cumbria are only available for rolling 4 quarter periods. The latest available estimates cover the 12 months ending September 2007 and December 2007 and are provided in Table 1.
Table 2 gives the number of persons claiming Jobseeker's Allowance resident in Westmorland and Lonsdale and Cumbria for each of the last twelve months.
These figures along with a wide range of other labour market data for parliamentary constituencies and local authorities are also published on the Office for National Statistics' NomisĀ(r) website:

|(1) Levels of unemployment are provided for persons aged 16 and over. The figures presented are weighted to population estimates published in 2007|
(2) Coefficients of Variation have been calculated for the latest period as an indication of the quality of the estimates. See following Guide to Quality.
Guide to Quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of an estimate, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CVfor example, for an estimate of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent. we would expect the population total to be within the range 180-220.
Key Coefficient of Variation (CV) (%) Statistical Robustness
* 0 = CV< 5 Estimates are considered precise
** 5 = CV < 10 Estimates are considered reasonably precise
*** 10 = CV < 20 Estimates are considered acceptable
**** CV 20 Estimates are considered too unreliable for practical purposes
