Gradual Fall in Live Register Continues in September
The standardised unemployment rate in September 2014 was 11.1%, down from 11.2% in August 2014. Seasonally adjusted, the Live Register recorded a monthly decrease of 4,700 (-1.2%) in September. This brings the seasonally adjusted total to 374,800.
The number of long term claimants on the Register in September 2014 was 178,388. Whilst this figure represents an overall annual decrease of 10,493 in the number of long term claimants, the figure now accounts for almost half of all people on the register.
There were 71,744 casual and part-time workers on the Live Register in September 2014, which represents 19.4% of the total Live Register. In August, there were also 62,937 people on activation programmes (including CE, TUS, Jobbridge, Back to Education Courses and Back to Work Enterprise Allowance etc.) who are not included in the Live Register figures.
