This bulletin is concerned with workless households in the UK for the period January to December 2012. Workless households are those where no-one aged 16 or over is in employment. These members may be unemployed or inactive. Inactive members may be unavailable to work because of family commitments, retirement or study, or unable to work through sickness/disability.

Among the key findings: Glasgow and Liverpool were in the top five workless areas for the ninth consecutive year since records began, with 30.2 per cent of households in Glasgow and 28.7 per cent in Liverpool workless. The highest percentage of workless households in Wales was in the Central Valleys at 26.2 per cent. Sickness, both long-term and temporary, was the main reason given for not working by people aged 16-64 years living in workless households across all the regions of England and countries of the UK.
