Live Register Continues to fall…..


The fall in the Live Register continued in March.  The seasonally adjusted unemployment figure was 350,600 giving a standardised unemployment rate of 10%.  The seasonally adjusted register fell by 4,700 in the month to the end of March and 42,556 in the last year. 

This on-going decrease in unemployment and the increase in the overall numbers in employment is a welcomed development.  The number of people who were long-term unemployed in March stood at over 160,000, down 18,932 in the year. Notwithstanding this decrease, the level of long-term unemployment is still a cause for serious concern and every effort must be made to ensure that people who are long-term unemployed share in the economic recovery.

 There were 85,769 people on activation programmes in February.
