0
UNEMPLOYMENT has fallen in Croydon for the last six months and has dropped by more than 1,500 claimants in the last year. The Office for National Statistics releases monthly figures for the number of people claiming Jobseekers' Allowance. In August, the latest available statistics, 8,633 people in Croydon claimed the benefit and this figure has been calculated to represent 3.6 per cent of the working age population from 16 to 64. Since February figures have decreased each month from 10,142. In past 12 months the number of claimants has fallen by 1,609 and 0.6 per cent of the working age population. When comparing the latest figure to the same month last year the decrease is by 1,720 and 0.7 per cent of the working age population. The figures are not an official measure of unemployment, as they only show people who are claiming Jobseekers' allowance.
