Unemployment Rate

UK Unemployment Rate

The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is conducted every month and polls just under 55,000 households. It includes all members of the household who are sixteen and older and defines 'unemployed' as anyone not currently working but who has actively sought work in the last four weeks, and is available to start working within two weeks.
