As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question about economic inactivity. (186501)
Estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) for the twelve months ending May 2003 show that there were 9,000 residents in private households aged 16 to 24 in the Bridgwater Parliamentary Constituency. Of these, 6,000 were not in full-time education and, among those, fewer than 1,000 were economically inactive.
These estimates are based on small sample sizes and are therefore subject to a high degree of sampling variability. They should therefore be treated with caution.
