Working and workless households in the UK: October to December 2023

Release date: Cancelled
Important information:

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has been facing the challenge of falling response rates for household surveys, as have other comparable countries. This issue became more acute in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) data collected for August 2023 and we temporarily suspended our LFS publications in October 2023.

While we have reintroduced some of our LFS publications from February 2024 we are continuing to review the options for producing LFS household estimates.

We will provide an update on future LFS workless household publications as soon as possible.


The economic status of households in the UK and the people living in them, where at least one person is aged 16 to 64 years. Taken from the Labour Force Survey.
