    Jobseekers Allowance Claimant Rates (November 2012)
    Hi all,

    The latest Jobseekers Allowance Claimant rates for October 2012 are now available on the site in the Jobs & Prosperity section, here are some of the headline findings from the new release:

    Jobseekers allowance claimant counts have decreased in most Greater Manchester authorities this month.

    The claimant rate in Rochdale Borough has decreased to 5.6% due to the number of claimants decreasing from 7,499 in September to 7,382 in October (a decrease of 117 claimants).

    Oldham remains the authority with the highest proportion of claimants in Greater Manchester. Both Rochdale and Manchester (5.6%) are the next highest with the gap extending to 0.2 percentage points this month.

    Youth unemployment decreased slightly in the borough in October to 2,320 (from 2,365 in September), representing 9.4% of the population age group. The vast majority of this number is made up of people aged 18-24 with only 10 people below the age of 18 claiming JSA in Rochdale Borough. The number of Long term youth claimants (those claiming for six months or more) also decreased to 800 claimants (from 890 in September).

    The number of JSA claimants per live unfilled Jobcentre Plus vacancy has again decreased from 3.7 in September to 3.3 in October due to increases in the number of job vacancies in the borough (from 2,015 in September to 2,245 in October). A breakdown of the available vacancies in the borough show that of the 2,245 vacant posts in October 1,845 are full-time vacancies compared to 400 which are part time.

    The existing source of administrative data for Jobcentre Plus vacancies is being decommissioned, this means that as of this month there will be no further updates to the vacancies dataset for the time being. Further information is available on the Nomis website.
