Letter from Glen Watson, dated June 2014

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics (ONS), I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary question asking the Minister for the Cabinet Office what proportion of women in Cannock Chase were in work in each of the last five years. (200237)

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles estimates of the number of people in employment from the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions.

The table shows the percentage of women aged 16 to 64 resident in Cannock Chase constituency who were in employment according to survey responses from the APS for the 12 month periods ending in December from 2009 to 2013.

As with any sample survey, estimates from the APS are subject to a certain level of uncertainty.

National and local area estimates for many labour market statistics, including employment, unemployment and claimant count are available on the NOMIS website at:
