Notes:

1. Data are unrounded.

2. These figures are not fully comparable over time and may not indicate developments in the labour market. Changes to Jobcentre Plus vacancy handling procedures have led to a major discontinuity in the vacancy statistic pre and post May 2006. See http://www.nomisweb.co.Uk/articles/177.aspx#may06 before comparing data over this period. Interpretation of these data need to take account of changes in recent years to Jobcentre Plus procedures for taking and handling vacancies.

3. Comprehensive estimates of all job vacancies (not just those notified to Jobcentre Plus) are available from the monthly ONS Vacancy Survey since April 2001, based on a sample of some 6,000 enterprises. However, the ONS survey is currently designed to provide national estimates only.
