Labour Market and Welfare

Last updated on Wednesday 11 August 2021

The Labour Market and Welfare theme includes statistics measuring different aspects of work and jobs and covers people’s employment, working patterns and the types of work they do. The theme also covers any earnings and benefits they receive.

We recently commented on a range of labour market and welfare statistics.

Our future plans for 2021/22 include a compliance check of Income Estimates for Small Areas produced by the Office for National Statistics and an assessment of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency’s Pay in Northern Ireland Civil Service statistics. We will also continue to provide regulatory support to producers who are transforming their statistics, including the Labour Market Survey and statistics on Universal Credit.

Contact our regulators for this domain Elise Baseley and William Richardson for more information.
