Unemployment Claimants

unemployed-claimants-graphicHaving a job has a significant effect on quality of life and can lead to better access to housing, food and facilities. This indicator also includes people who have been unemployed for over one year because the longer people are out of work, the harder it is to get a job. They will generally have greater difficulty re-entering the workforce and therefore little opportunity of improving their lifestyle.

Both unemployment and long term unemployment have been falling in Coventry for the last five years. Long term unemployment peaked to almost half of the total unemployment figure in 1994, but has since decreased to less than one third in 1998.
