Here, the Employment by Business Sector count as a percentage of the adult population is used as a proxy measure for unemployment, since the official unemployment rate is not available at sub-council levels. It is shown as a chart and a table – both of these can be downloaded by clicking on the icon on the right-hand side of the chart. The chart and table default is to display data for Scotland and East Ayrshire. You can click on any of the other area names to add them (or click on them a second time to remove them). This data may differ from that in the Key Statistics section, because different methods need to be used for sub-council areas. For details about the data sources, click here.
