The latest available estimates from the Annual Population Survey (APS) for the year to December 2017 estimate that:

  • The unemployment rate for people aged 16 and over in Doncaster North was 4.7%, down from 10.5% in the year to December 2010.*
  • The employment rate for the working age population (those aged 16-64) in Doncaster North was 73.1%, up from 67.1% in the year to December 2010.*

Due to small, disclosive sample size issues the information requested for youth unemployment in the Doncaster North constituency is not available.

Administrative data from November 2017 shows that there were 4,876 Employment Support Allowance (ESA) claimants in Doncaster North. This represents approximately 8.5% of the working age population (those aged 16-64) in Doncaster North.

Note:

*The sub-regional labour market data is estimated by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), using the Annual Population Survey. The figures above are the best central estimates of the labour market performance in Doncaster North, taking into account sampling variability. However, the small sample size of survey respondents at constituency level means that the confidences levels are generally too large at this level to be able to say there has been a real change in data over the period with any certainty. For that reason, both the rise in employment and the fall in unemployment are said to be statistically insignificant.

The level of youth unemployment in the Doncaster North constituency was unpublished due to very small disclosive sample sizes.
