The Claimant Count records the number of people claiming unemployment-related benefits - since October 1996 people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA). The series has been used as a main indicator of labour market activity since the 1970's and figures are derived from records of claimants held at Job Benefit Offices. Interactive maps are available for annual and monthly figures at Local Government District (LGD), Local Government District 2014 (LGD2014) and Assembly Area (AA). You need an Internet browser which supports HTML5 to view these maps. Most modern browser such as Internet Explorer 9, Firefox and Chrome support HTML5.

Claimant Count Unemployed Maps are found under the ‘Labour Market’ Theme on NINIS Interactive Content.
