Northern Ireland Labour Market Report June 2018

Change over quarter / month Seasonally adjusted LFS estimates for Northern Ireland for the period February-April 2018 showed that over the quarter:

• the unemployment rate (3.3%) increased by 0.2 percentage points (pps)

• the employment rate (69.7%) decreased by 0.2 pps

• the economic inactivity rate (27.9%) was unchanged. None of the reported changes over the quarter were statistically significant i.e. the recorded changes did not exceed the variability expected from a sample survey of this size and are not likely to reflect real change.

• a decrease of 100 over the month in the seasonally adjusted claimant count to 28,900. During May 2018 there were:

• 189 confirmed redundancies notified to the Department, representing a decrease on the previous monthly period total of 308 confirmed redundancies. The employee jobs total in Northern Ireland at March 2018 was 763,440 which was:
