Unemployment is a key measure of deprivation and hardship and this often has an adverse effect on marketing response. Unemployment is concentrated within our major conurbations and this TRAC dataset provides an up to date set of measures based upon published monthly counts of unemployment claimants. The most detailed geographic level for which these counts are available are super output areas in England & Wales, and datazones in Scotland, and the counts were standardized to give unemployment and job vacancy rates per thousand properties paying council tax for all areas in the country. The rates were then linked to postcodes to provide a unique and current picture of claimant rates that is easy to use, and to append to other databases. 

The information is held in two datasets. The first contains the most recent monthly information on:

  1. Rates of unemployment.
  2. Rates of unemployment broken out by gender and age.
  3. Unemployment rates banded into 20 equal sized groups for profiling purposes


The second dataset contains historical information going back to January 2013 and holds all monthly information since that date on:

  1. Rates of unemployment.
