What’s going on with DWP’s statistics on workless households?

20 Aug 2010, by in Labour market, Politics

I have a post up at Left Foot Forward considering the mystery of DWP’s statistics on workless households. Over the course of recent weeks we have been told that 23, then 7 and then 4 per cent of households in London have never had a job, and that workless student households are part of a problem that the country needs to “tackle now”.  Could politicians be putting a party-political spin on statistical information?
