For Facts’ Sake: The real picture of unemployment in the UK

19 Feb 2014, by in Labour market

Today’s labour market figures show that unemployment continues to fall. While this is positive news, the wider picture of unemployment across the UK shows that there are still over six million people that want a job… That’s more than 10 times the number of job centre vacancies!

A bar chart comparing unemployment figures - 1.2 million people are unemployed and claiming jobseekers allowance (JSA), 1.2 million are unemployed but not claiming JSA, 1.4 million work part-time but want more hours, and 2.3 million people are unemployed and want work but haven't had chance to look for a job in the last month. The final bar shows that there are just 580,000 job centre vacancies available.Download a larger version of the graphic here.

By For Facts’ Sake –  a TUC and Ripped Off Britons project around graphics and resources to reveal the facts that all too often get in the way of a good story!
