Figures published by the Office for National Statistics show that the number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance dropped in February for the third consecutive month, to 1.585 million.

Early evaluation evidence on the jobseekers regime and flexible new deal, the six- month offer and support for newly unemployed was published in January 2010. Further evidence on the impact of the six-month offer and the jobseekers regime and flexible new deal on customer outcomes will be available from early 2011, with evidence on the impact of the young person’s guarantee to follow in 2012.
