As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many (a) men and (b) women were in employment in the Hemsworth constituency in (i) May 1997 and (ii) May of each year since 1997. (288662)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles employment statistics for local areas from the Annual Population Survey and its predecessor the annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions. Estimates for local areas are only available on an annual basis.
Table 1, attached, shows the number of people in employment aged 16 and over by gender, resident in the Hemsworth constituency. Estimates are provided for the 12 months ending in February from 1998 to 2004 from the annual LFS, and for the 12 months ending in December from 2004 to 2008, from the APS.
As these estimates are for a subset of the population in small geographical areas, they are based on small sample sizes, and are therefore subject to large margins of uncertainty.
|Table 1: Men and women in employment( 1) in Hemsworth parliamentary constituency|
|12 months ending||Men||Women|
|(1) Levels of employment are provided for persons aged 16 and over.|
(2) Coefficients of Variation have been calculated for the latest period as an indication of the quality of the estimates. See Guide to Quality below.
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
