The monthly update of the claimant count and Jobcentre vacancies data series took place at 09:30 on 12 December 2012 with the release of new data for November 2012. The full list of updates is given below.

Change to Jobcentre Vacancies: We had previously stated that the October vacancy figures published last month would be the last update to this dataset. This was incorrect due to a misunderstanding over periods between DWP and ourselves. Instead, the November jobcentre vacancy data released on 12 /12/2012 will be the last update of these data on Nomis.Future jobcentre vacancy statistics will be published by Jobcentre Plus using their Universal Jobmatch tool.
DWP have published their response (pdf) to the consultation on changes to Jobcentre Plus vacancy statistics.

Accessing the data
