Claimant count in St. Helens has remained around 2.8-3.0% over the past 12 months and has increased slightly to 3.2% this month. NB. The rollout of Universal Credit (one of the indicators forming part of this measure) is more complete in the North West than the rest of England. St. Helens Claimant Count is in line with the North West average. JSA claimants which, had been steadily increasing since the beginning of the year have dropped over the last three months and now stand at 0.8% of the working age population, the same as the North West and England averages.
The next data update via NOMIS is 22nd January 2019.
