Footnotes

1. "Other" reasons for inactivity include: "Other", "No reason given" and "Waiting on the result of a job application".

2. Estimates for the population aged 16-24 have been published externally for July 2020 to June 2021. However this publication includes estimates for April 2020 to March 2021, so the analysis is provided on a consistent basis for all age groups.

3. 16-24 year old employment rate estimates for some local authorities are based on small sample sizes and should be used with caution (see page 71)

4. 'Minority ethnic' includes all categories outside the white population.

5. 'White' includes 'White Polish' and 'White Gypsy' who also suffer disadvantage.

6. Underemployment rate estimates for some local authorities are based on small sample sizes and should be used with caution (see page 71)

7. Note: Sample sizes for the unemployed cohort are relatively small compared to the employed and inactive cohorts. Consequently unemployment estimates at local level can have large sampling variations. To improve the quality of estimates for all local authorities, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) developed model based estimates. More information can be found on the ONS website: https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peoplenotinwork/unemployment/datasets/modelledunemploymentforlocalandunitaryauthoritiesm01
