Claimant Count

UK Claimant Count

Monthly report on the number of people claiming unemployment benefits. The report is categorized by claimant age, length of time searching for employment, location, and occupation. A declining trend is seen as a positive economic indicator as it suggests a greater number of people are working from the previous month and this tends to increase the value of the currency.
