Total jobs is a workplace-based measure of jobs and comprises:

  • employees (from the Business Register and Employment Survey),
  • self-employment jobs (from the Annual Population Survey),
  • government-supported trainees (from DfES and DWP) and
  • HM Forces (from MoD).

The number of jobs in an area is composed of jobs done by residents (of any age) and jobs done by workers (of any age) who commute into the area.

Jobs density is the numbers of jobs per resident aged 16-64. For example, a job density of 1.0 would mean that there is one job for every resident of working age.
