UK labour market figures: 20 July 2016

IES News

20 Jul 2016

The first labour market statistics since the EU referendum continue the previous positive trend, but are covering a period before the vote, so there can be no evidence yet of any Brexit effect on employment.

These monthly figures, released by the Office for National Statistics, are available from their website.

We will continue to monitor the data over forthcoming months and offer our analysis on these pages.
