Claimant Count - 16+ population

Note: The Claimant Count does not meet the internationally agreed definition of unemployment specified by the International Labour Organisation (ILO).  Estimates of unemployment are sourced from the Labour Force Survey, Annual Population Survey and modelled estimates which make use of the Annual Population Survey

The Claimant Count measures the number of people claiming benefit principally for the reason of being unemployed:

  • from April 2015, the Claimant Count includes all Universal Credit claimants who are required to seek work and be available for work, as well as all JSA claimants,
  • between May 2013 and March 2015, the Claimant Count includes all out of work Universal Credit claimants as well as all JSA claimants,
  • between October 1996 and April 2013, the Claimant Count is a count of the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA),
  • between January 1971 (when comparable estimates start) and September 1996, it is an estimate of the number of people who would have claimed unemployment-related benefit if Jobseeker's Allowance had existed at that time.

The Claimant Count includes people who claim unemployment-related benefits but who do not receive payment. For example, some claimants will have had their benefits stopped for a limited period of time by Jobcentre Plus. Some people claim JSA in order to receive National Insurance Credits.

Under Universal Credit it is expected that a broader span of claimants will claim benefit principally for the reason of being unemployed and therefore be included within the Claimant Count. This means that, with the roll-out of Universal Credit, the level of the Claimant Count series is likely to be higher than it would have been otherwise, even if labour market conditions remain unchanged.

The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2019
The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2019 is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas (or neighbourhoods) in England.  The Index of Multiple Deprivation ranks every small area (Lower Super Output Area - LSOA) in England from 1 (most deprived area) to 32,844 (least deprived area).

While IMD is principally used for looking at small areas, the Department for Communities and Local Government   (DCLG) does provide some summary data for larger areas e.g. Local Authorities.  However, the pattern of deprivation across large areas can be complex. In some areas, deprivation is concentrated in pockets, rather than evenly spread throughout. In some other areas the opposite picture is seen, with deprivation spread relatively evenly throughout the area, and with no highly deprived areas.

This report shows information on IMD and the underlying domain indices.

Fuel Poverty - (2017) 

Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Low Income – High Cost (LIHC) measure.

A household is considered to be fuel poor if it has higher than typical energy costs to provide an indoor environment that does not adversely affect their health and wellbeing (21c in living room and 18c in the rest of the house), and would as a result be left with a disposable income below the poverty line if it spent the required money to meet those costs.

It captures the fact that fuel poverty is distinct from general poverty: not all poor households are fuel poor, and some households would not normally be considered poor but could be pushed into fuel poverty if they have high energy costs.

Fuel poverty is therefore an overlapping problem of households having a low income and facing high energy costs.

National Child Measurement Programme

The (NCMP) measures the height and weight of children in Reception class (aged 4 to 5) and year 6 (aged 10 to 11), to assess overweight and obesity levels in children within primary schools.

Excess weight (overweight and obese) is a key public health issue, posing a major health challenge and risk to future health and wellbeing and life expectancy in County Durham. The World Health Organisation (WHO) regards childhood obesity as one of the most serious global health challenges for the 21st century.

The Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2019 - Crime Domain
The Crime domain measures the rate of recorded crime in an area for four major crime types representing the risk of personal and material victimisation at a small area level. The types are violence, burglary, theft and criminal damage.  The Index of Multiple Deprivation ranks every small area (Lower Super Output Area - LSOA) in England from 1 (most deprived area) to 32,844 (least deprived area).
