Quarterly Employment Survey
Quarterly Employment Survey Latest Results - Published 17th December 2014
- Seasonal adjusted estimates from the Quarterly Employment Survey showed that there were 720,290 employee jobs in September 2014. This represented an increase +6,450 jobs (+0.9%) over the quarter and an annual increase of +14,200 jobs (+2.0%).
- Over the latest quarter there were increases across all sectors; the Services sector (+4,100 jobs), the Manufacturing sector (+1,280 jobs), the Construction sector (+1,010 jobs) and the ‘Other Industries’ sector (+60 jobs). The public sector jobs decreased by 0.2% (-370 jobs) while the private sector jobs experienced an increase (+1.2% or +6,080 jobs) over the same period.
- The annual increase in jobs (+14,200 jobs) was driven primarily by an increase in Service sector jobs (+11,900 jobs). There were also increases in the Manufacturing sector (+2,870 jobs), in the Construction sector (+480 jobs) whilst the ‘Other industries’ sector experienced a decrease (-1,050 jobs). The public sector decreased by 3,030 jobs over the year, this decrease can be largely explained by the reclassifications from the public sector to the private sector of Royal Mail plc and Lloyds Banking Group. The public sector jobs now stand at 6.2% lower (-14,020 jobs) than the series peak at September 2009. The private sector was up 17,060 jobs over the year, but remains 1.4% (7,330 jobs) lower than the series peak in June 2008.
