This report from the GLA Intelligence Unit looks at the recent release of Worklessness Statistics from the Office for National Statistics and presents the key messages for London.

Key findings

  • London has among the lowest proportions of all-working households of any region in the UK, but also below average proportion of workless households.

  • The proportion of households in London with both working and non-working adults has been rising faster than for most of the UK, while workless households have been decreasing, particularly in Inner London.

  • The number of children in workless households has been falling quite sharply, but London is the only region where the proportion of children in workless households is higher than the overall proportion of households that are workless.
