The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has developed new annual local area datasets called the Annual Population Survey (APS) household datasets. They allow production of family and household labour market statistics at local areas and for small sub-groups of the population across the UK. This table shows estimates for the number and % of households which are workless and the number of people living in workless households. As this is based on survey data it is subject to sampling variations. More information on the methodology can be found here: http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/publications/re-reference-tables.html?edition=tcm%3A77-223100 Definitions 1. Estimates within this analysis only cover households that contain at least one person aged 16 to 64. 2. A household is defined as a single person, or a group of people living at the same address who have the address as their only or main residence and either share one main meal a day or share living accommodation (or both). 3. A working household is a household that contains at least one person aged 16 to 64, where all individuals aged 16 and over are in employment. 4. A mixed household is a household that contains at least one person aged 16 to 64, where at least one person aged 16 and over is in employment and at least one other is either unemployed or inactive. 5. A workless household is a household that contains at least one person aged 16 to 64, where no-one aged 16 or over is in employment.
