Job Seekers Allowance Analysis - October 2011

For the third month in a row unemployment in Devon has gone up, from 9,409 in August to 9,556 in
September, representing an increase of 1.6% month on month. However the percentage of the working age population who are in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) remains the same at 2.1%. Nonetheless the rate of JSA claimants in Devon continues to remain below our neighbouring areas and significantly below the national average, as it has done over the past twelve months.
