Figures derived from records of claimants held at Social Security offices. The term "claimant" is used to include those who claim unemployment benefit, income support and national insurance credits. The figures include the severely disabled unemployed but exclude students seeking vacation work and the temporarily stopped. In order to clarify the underlying trend in unemployment a seasonally adjusted series is produced. Numbers and percentages of unemployed claimants in Travel-to-Work Areas are also available.
