Numbers of jobs in an area by gender, and whether an employee or self-employed.

This data shows the number of jobs, not the number of people. People with more than one job are counted more than once.
Figures may not add up due to rounding. Figures are rounded to the nearest thousand. Percentages are rounded to one decimal place and were calculated on unrounded figures.
Employees - An employee is anyone aged 16 years or over that an organisation directly pays from its payroll(s), in return for carrying out a full-time or part-time job or being on a training scheme. It excludes voluntary workers, self-employed and working owners who are not paid via PAYE
People who are self-employed in a second job are included in the self-employed totals.
Self-employment data is taken from the Annual Population Survey, and is by place of work. The micro data is available from the UK Data Archive.
The male/female split for employee jobs was taken from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings data from These proportions were then applied to the BRES employee totals since the ASHE is a not a reliable source for total employee jobs.

See more on the BRES website.

Modelled estimates and projections of jobs are available in the GLA Employment Projections. These are considered to be the most accurate jobs estimates at borough level.
