The number of people signing on the Live Register fell again this month as conditions in the labour market continue to improve.
The latest set of figures from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) showed the number of claimants on the register dropped by 3,400 in July, the 25th consecutive monthly drop.
As a result, the seasonally adjusted register, which includes casual and part-time workers as well as those on Jobseeker’s Allowance, stood at 382,800 at the end of July, its lowest level since April 2009.
