Notes:
1 The claimant count consists of the people who are claiming unemployment-related benefits.
2 Claimants by age and duration is available for computerised claims only.
3 Approximately 1 percent of all claims are clerical and therefore not included in this dataset.
4 Data have been rounded to nearest 5.
