Notes:
1 Live unfilled vacancies are those for which a jobseeker can actively apply.
2 Data relate to the number of vacancies that have either been filled by Jobcentre Plus or withdrawn.
3 Interpretation of these data need to take account of changes in recent years to Jobcentre Plus procedures for taking and handling vacancies. These figures are not fully comparable over time and may not indicate developments in the labour market.
4 Data for March 2006 onwards are based on the 2003 Standard Industrial Classification. Prior to this, it was based on SIC 1992. Though the codes are similar, comparisons across the divide may be affected by discontinuities. A more detailed explanation is available on the nomis web site.
