A Closer Look

UK cities | An international comparison of unemployment

Unemployment has fallen for the second consecutive month to March. Yet the outlook remains fragile as part-time work and self employment increase in the absence of full-time job creation.

The picture across UK cities continues to look very different. To highlight just how different we’ve compared ILO unemployment rates by city to countries around the world. Unemployment rates in Crawley are comparable to unemployment in Norway; Bristol to Sweden; Stoke to Bulgaria; Hastings to Iceland; Middlesbrough to Portugal. 230 miles from Chatham to Swansea takes you through Cyprus, US, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sweden, Turkey and Hungary.
