The Rise Continues

6 Nov 2007

The upward trend in the Live Register continued today with the seasonally adjusted figure for October 2007 standing at 164,700. This means that an additional 500 people were signing-on in October in comparison to September.

The decline in construction activity is the most likely cause of this increase as 900 additional men signed-on while there was a decrease in the number of women signing-on of 400.
