Regional Workforce Jobs

The quarterly update of the workforce jobs datasets took place at 09:30 on 14 September 2011 with the release of new data for June 2011. The datasets updated are:

  • workforce jobs by industry (SIC 2007) - seasonally adjusted    [link to data]
  • workforce jobs by industry (SIC 2007) and sex - unadjusted    [link to data]

This series provides estimates of total workforce jobs, employee jobs, self-employment jobs, government supported trainees, and HM forces. Figures are available at national and regional level only (no local authority data).

Unreliable Estimates

As of September 2011, ONS are highlighting regional Workforce Jobs estimates by industry where the employee jobs component has either:

  • a coefficient of variation greater than 25%, or
  • a coefficient of variation greater than 10% and a standard error greater than 20,000.

These estimates are deemed unreliable and should be treated with caution. These criteria have been applied back to 2010 Q1, the first period selected on the SIC 2007 sample design. Download this table (xls) to get the list of SIC industry sections deemed unreliable by region.
