ONS – Claimant count (Derby wards)

Source: Office for National Statistics, Claimant count.

The Claimant Count measures the number of people claiming benefit principally for the reason of being unemployed:
•from April 2015, the Claimant Count includes all Universal Credit claimants who are required to seek work and be available for work, as well as all JSA claimants
•between May 2013 and March 2015, the Claimant Count includes all out of work Universal Credit claimants as well as all JSA claimants.

The Claimant Count includes people who claim unemployment-related benefits but who do not receive payment. For example, some claimants will have had their benefits stopped for a limited period of time by Jobcentre Plus. Some people claim JSA in order to receive National Insurance Credits.

Please note; wherever possible, historic data are standardised using the 16-64 population from the corresponding mid-year estimate of population (MYE). For claimant data which supersedes the date of the most recent MYE, the latest available MYE is used as the denominator.
