It is not possible to provide International Labour Organization ( ILO ) unemployment data disaggregated below local authority level from survey data (Annual Population Survey and Labour Force Survey) as the numbers are below reliability thresholds.

Claimant count data can be used to measure those claiming unemployment related benefits in Scotland where survey data cannot be used. The table details the number of women claiming unemployment related benefits in Dundee by 50 to 54 and 55 to 59 age-groups, and the percentage of women claiming unemployment related benefits in Dundee these groups represent.
