AIRO have developed a data visualisation presenting a summary of long term Live Register figures between January 2007 and September 2015. These figures allow us to monitor the changing landscape in relation to Live Register claimants across a sustained period of contrasting economic conditions. 
 
This data is categorised by Age Category and Gender and allows users to view the Percentage Change from January 2007 or the Seasonally Adjusted count of Live Register claimants. The data viz also includes data presenting the long term Standardised Unemployment Rate for the monthly period between 1983 and 2015. Interact with the visualisation below by using the data selection filters.
