The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about redundancies and dismissals of women in the UK between 1997 and 2004. (215474)
The attached table gives estimates of those women dismissed or made redundant in the 12-month periods ending in November each year for the years 1997 to 2004. Estimates are from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) in which respondents are asked about whether they have been dismissed or made redundant in the three months prior to their survey interview.
As with any statistical sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to sampling variability.
|12 months |
(16)Based on responses to the LFS about dismissals and redundancies experienced in the three months prior to being interviewed.
