Labour Market Report #13: how many people want work?

31 Mar 2011, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

We have just published the latest edition of our Labour Market Report.

In it, we provide our usual round-up of employment and unemployment figures. There is a section on “Want Work” rates – a way of measuring labour market slack. Using this measure there are 4,888,000 people who want a job but don’t have one.
