MP Welcomes Local Fall in Unemployment

The number of unemployed claimants in the North East Hertfordshire Constituency in August 2011 was 1,318. This represents a rate of 2.8% of the economically active population aged 16 to 64, the 540th highest of the 650 UK constituencies. The number of claimants is 36 lower than in August 2010. These data are not seasonally adjusted.

Commenting, Oliver Heald said, “At a time when some areas are seeing rises, it is good that unemployment locally is falling. This is a tribute to the efficiency and strength of local business.”
