Labour Market Participation in England and Wales: Local Area Analysis Using the 2011 Census

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

Key Points:

Among the 45.5 million usual residents in England and Wales, aged 16 and over in March 2011, 26.7 million were in employment, 2.1 million were unemployed and 16.7 million were economically inactive.

Across the local authorities of England and Wales, the Isles of Scilly had the highest employment rate (89.4%) and lowest unemployment rate (1.5%) and inactivity rates (9.1%). Tourism is a major part of its economy along with farming and agriculture. Most businesses tend to be small and family run and therefore most people are working.

Middlesbrough was the local authority with the highest unemployment rate for those aged 16 and over at almost double the average for England and Wales as a whole. It is an area impacted by the decline of several industries over the past 50 years.

Nottingham had the highest inactivity rate (34.6%) among local authorities across England and Wales. The next two highest inactivity rates were in Oxford (33.7%) and Cambridge (33.1%). All three areas contain a higher than average concentration of students.
