A London series by industry and a borough series (no industry) 1984 to 2011.

These data have been used by GLA Economics to forecast long-term employment projections and within GLA Economics' models for exports, tourism and life sciences. The two series are:

1. London Employment Jobs: a London level series which includes Employee Jobs and Self-Employment Jobs from 1984 to 2010 with industries by GLA Economics sectors on a SIC 2007 basis
2. A borough level Employee Jobs series 1984 to 2010 (no industry breakdown)

Methods and assumptions behind the data are explained in the GLA Economics Working Paper 52
