This report contains the latest figures on employment trends and wider economic indicators for the three months to November 2011, showing that the unemployment rate rose to 8.4%, the highest level since 1995. The number of unemployed young people rose by 52,000 in the quarter to 1,043,000, a new record high. Unemployment, on the International Labour Organisation measure, rose by 118,000 on the quarter. The number of people in employment rose by 18,000 on the quarter and 26,000 on the year to 29,119,000. The rise in the unemployment rate, despite a rise in the number of people in work, is explained by growth of the 16-64 population of 124,000 over the past year.
