The results for Summer 1993 (June to August 1993) from the quarterly Labour Force Survey for Great Britain are released today; the key findings are given below.

Comparisons are made with results from the previous annual surveys for Spring 1984 (the first year in which internationally agreed definitions of employment and unemployment were fully incorporated into the survey) and for Spring 1993 (the most recent). All comparisons are made on a seasonally adjusted basis except for redundancies for which no seasonal factors are available.

27.7 million people were economically active; this was a rise of 1 million (3.9%) since Spring 1984, and the same as in Spring 1993.

24.8 million people were in employment; this was a rise of 1.3 million (5.5%) since Spring 1984, and a fall of 0.02 million (0.1%) since Spring 1993.

21.3 million people were employees; this was a rise of 0.7 million (3.2%) since Spring 1984, and a fall of 0.02 million (0.08%) since Spring 1993.

3.1 million people were self-employed; this was a rise of 0.5 million (18.0%) since Spring 1984, and a rise of 0.01 million (0.3%) since Spring 1993.

2.9 million people were unemployed on the ILO definition; this was a fall of 0.2 million (7.7%) since Spring 1984, and a rise of 0.03 million (0.9%) since Spring 1993.
