Fix the Roof While the Sun is Shining Update

Everything you need to know about today’s unemployment figures:

  • Employment rate is 72.0%.
  • There were 30.09 million people in employment aged 16 and over, up 250,000 from May to July 2013 and up 485,000 from a year earlier.
  • Uunemployment rate is 7.4%, down 0.3% from May to July 2013 and down 0.5 from a year earlier.
  • There were 2.39 million unemployed people aged 16 and over, down 99,000 from May to July 2013 and down 121,000 from a year earlier.
  • Economic inactivity rate is 22.1% (the lowest since 1991).
  • Total pay rose by 0.9% compared with August to October 2012.
