Jobseekers Allowance claimants in Surrey by ethnic group - Surrey-i.xlsx (35.58 kB)

May 2019 to May 2021

The number of claimants with missing ethnicity information has increased since May 2020 (pre-2020 it was around 5% and post-2020 it is at least 30%). Therefore, caution is needed when interpreting the more recent figures as there is a large amount of missing data.
