ONS has discovered an error affecting series BCJG (claimant count level for Great Britain, not seasonally adjusted) for July 2012, which appears in the Labour Market Statistics and Claimant Count and Vacancies datasets. These datasets have now been corrected. The originally published incorrect figure of 1,505,200 has been replaced with the correct figure of 1,508,900.

This dataset contains the main labour market statistics data series. All of the series in this dataset are available in spreadsheet format from the labour market data tables. In this dataset Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates are shown for the mid-month of the three-month average time periods.

For example, estimates for January-March 2011 are shown as "February 2011", estimates for February-April 2011 are shown as "March 2011", etc.

PLEASE NOTE: Selecting the "Download entire dataset" option will generate a very large spreadsheet.
