liverpool/hartlepool among worst for workless households

In 2015, the areas with the highest percentage of workless households were generally located outside of the south of England, according to a report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

However, not all locations outside of the south of England had high percentages of workless households; 13 of the 50 areas with the lowest in 2015 were in Scotland, Wales, the Midlands and the north of England.

Liverpool and Hartlepool were in the five areas with the highest percentage of workless households in both 2014 and 2015.

Richmond upon Thames and Windsor and Maidenhead were in the five areas with the lowest percentage of workless households in both 2014 and 2015.

The ONS bulletin provides statistics on the economic status of households in the UK at a regional and local level and the people living in them. The statistics are from the Annual Population Survey (APS), cover the period January to December 2015 and only include households where at least one person is aged 16 to 64 years old.

Owing to the larger sample size at local level within the APS, these statistics, says the ONS, provide the most timely and highest quality estimates of the economic status of households for local areas and other sub-regional geographical breakdowns within Great Britain.

At a regional level, the larger sample size of the APS allows a comparison of reasons why people within workless households are not in employment.

Apart from this exception, the most up-to-date analysis of the economic status of households at a national and regional level is available in the bulletin, Working and workless households in the UK: Apr to June 2016. These statistics come from the Labour Force Survey (LFS), cover the period April to June 2016, include data for earlier years and are consistent with the headline national figure.
