The Office for National Statistics use the Labour Force Survey and Annual Population Survey to provide estimates of employment nationally and at a sub-national level.

For July-September 2018, there were 27.45 million people employed in England. The employment rate was 75.8%, an increase of 5.2 percentage points since the 2010 election.

However, trends in employment in Kettering and Northamptonshire are not possible to ascertain robustly, due to small numbers of the people with these characteristics in these survey samples.

Figures for the East Midlands region are available. For July-September 2018, there were 2.27 million people employed in the East Midlands region. The employment rate was 75.0%, an increase of 4.1 percentage points since 2010.
