As National Statistician, 1 have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what the (a) employment and (b) unemployment rate for (i) women, (ii) men and (iii) men and women aged (A) 16 to 24, (B) 25 to 34, (C) 35 to 49 and (D) 50 to 60 years educated to degree level was in each month of the last 10 years.

The attached tables provide estimated employment and unemployment rates for the age categories requested based on those educated to at least degree level or equivalent, for each quarter since 1998. Monthly data are not available.
The estimates are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LPS). As with any sample survey, estimates from the LPS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
The figures have been derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn 2007. Consequently, the figures from quarter 3 2006 are not entirely consistent with the figures published in the monthly Labour Market Statistics First Release which are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.
|Employment rates( 1) , by age and gender for those educat ed to degree level or equivalent c alendar quarters, 1998 to 2008, United Kingdom, not seasonally adjusted|
|16 to 24||25 to 34||35 to 49||50 to 60||16 to 24||25 to 34||35 to 49||50 to 60||16 to 24||25 to 34||35 to 49||50 to 60|
|(1) Employment rate is calculated as the number of people in employment as a percentage of the population in the individual category.|
The estimates exclude people in most types of communal establishment (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites etc)
