These data were obtained from the 2001 Census, Standard Tables. This table provides information in number and percentages on Gender and National Statistics Socio-Economic Classifications (NS-SEC) by Ethnic Group. National Statistics Socio-economic Classification (NS-SeC) was introduced by the Government to replace Social Class based on Occupation (also known as the Registrar General’s Social Class) and Socio-Economic Groups (SEG). A full-time student is a person of any age who has indicated that they were a schoolchild or student in full-time education. Full-time students and schoolchildren who were economically active are identified separately in the economic activity tables. They are not included in other categories of economically active such as ’employees’ or ‘unemployed’. In the National Statistics Socio-economic Classification all full-time students are recorded in the ‘full-time students’ category regardless of whether they were economically active or not. A person is defined as being long-term unemployed at Census if the year they last worked was 1999 or earlier.
