Unemployment Annual Population Survey

Unemployment is measured in two ways, firstly by the claimant count and secondly by the Labour Force Survey (LFS) which asks people whether they are out of work and actively seeking work. The LFS measure of unemployment tends to be higher then the claimant count figure as not all people who are unemployed are entitled to or chose not to claim out of work benefits, so provides a more realistic view of total unemployment within an economy. There are different types of unemployment.
