* - Estimate is below reliability threshold ( See Annex A for more details).
Notes:
1. The denominator for the unemployment rate is economic activity (employed plus unemployed).
2. ONS have produced a new modelling methodology to produce estimates of unemployment level and rate on the International Labour Organisation ( ILO) definition for local authority areas. These modelled estimates are the preferred source of unemployment for local authority areas, more details of this can be found in Annex B.
