The Department for Work and Pensions does not produce a forecast of employment levels of its own.

The Department draws on a number of elements of the Budget and pre-Budget report economic forecasts for planning purposes. These forecasts are detailed, along with a discussion of the current state of the economy, in the Budget and pre-Budget report. The latest forecast was set out in Annex A of the 2009 pre-Budget report (Cm 7747), published on 9 December 2009.

A copy of the pre-Budget report (Cm 7747) is available in the Library.
