Labour & Wages: The tracking of employment and pay across the UK

Podcast logo

From “The Great Resignation” to the gender pay gap, how should the employment figures we hear so much about really be interpreted? In the latest episode of our podcast Statistically Speaking we clock on for a shift with the ONS labour market team.

At your service are employees of the month, our head of labour market and household statistics David Freeman, and his colleague, senior statistician Nicola White as we explore how ONS is using faster sources of information to track employment and wages across the UK.

We consider what it really means to be “economically inactive”, why the over 50s are retreating from the world of work, and how even in 2022, there are still jobs dominated by one gender.
