Labour market analysis

Following employment reaching a record high at the start of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has caused an economic crisis. We have seen a significant impact on the labour market, with an increase in unemployment that has been faster than anything seen before.

Every month, we produce detailed and timely analysis of the latest labour market statistics. We examine what the figures tell us both about the health of our labour market, and what they mean for peoples’ experience of work, with a particular focus on groups facing labour market disadvantage.
