This month’s Labour Market Report

18 Apr 2011, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

Labour Market Report # 14 looks at the latest employment figures to find out what has happened to employment and unemployment rates for different age groups since the recession started.

There’s a general pattern of older groups doing better than younger – employment rates have actually risen for people over state pension age.

The weak recovery is still not benefitting women – women’s unemployment continues to rise, and is now higher than it was in the 1990s recession.
