I’m not sure how much value these posts add, but being anally retentive continue to produce them (and update the data).
Along with the rise in employment announced this morning Jobseekers Allowance claims have dropped in Wandsworth.
The latest figures (which I’ve been a bit slow in posting) show a drop in claims for Jobseekers Allowance in Wandsworth.
It isn’t unemployment, of course, because those figures aren’t available for months on a borough level, but claims for Jobseekers’ Allowance, the main benefit available to the unemployed, fell (very slightly) in Wandsworth in March despite the national increase in unemployment.
Despite the rise in employment, the number of people claiming unemployment still seems to be rising.
