JSA Claimant Count Rates

At any given time there will be a certain proportion of the working age population who will be out of work. The Job Seekers Allowance claimant count provides a timely snapshot of the proportion of the resident working age population who are currently in receipt of this out of work benefit. However there may also be others seeking work who are not entitled to claim or choose not to.
