Disadvantaged People: Employment

Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to his Department's publication of statistics for DSO 3.7: Overall Employment rate (working age population) at neighbourhood level (in deprived areas), England, what the employment rate was in each individual deprived neighbourhood in (a) April 2007 to March 2008, (b) July 2007 to June 2008, (c) October 2007 to September 2008, (d) January 2007 to December 2008 and (e) April 2008 to March 2009. (306555)

The data source used to calculate DSO 3.7 ‘Overall Employment rate (working age population) at neighbourhood level (in deprived areas)’ is the Office of National Statistics’ (ONS) sample survey the Annual Population Survey (APS). Due to the small sample size of the Annual Population Survey at neighbourhood level (lower super output area) we are unable to provide estimates for individual deprived neighbourhoods.
