(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 CV—for 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
