Dataset:X05: Comparison between unemployment and the Claimant Count
10 November 2020
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, all face-to-face interviewing for the Labour Force Survey was suspended and replaced with telephone interviewing. This change in mode for first interviews has changed the non-response bias of the survey, affecting interviews from March 2020 onwards. More information can be found in an article on the ONS website. Estimates presented in this table for periods from January to March 2020 have been weighted to account for this bias.
