To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what her latest estimate is of the (a) job vacancy rate and (b) unemployment rate in each region and nation of the UK.
Answer (Mims Davies)
The official statistics on vacancies are not available for each region and nation of the UK. However, experimental statistics on online job adverts are available from ONS at a regional level. These statistics are provided by ONS in partnership with Adzuna (an online job search engine). Statistics on regional unemployment can be found here.
