Manchester Employment Statistics


Figures
shown below are latest and best available at the time of writing.

Manchester is the third most densely
populated conurbation in the country. The city has a vast local labour
market, with over 60% of the UK within two hours drive and the capital
just thirty minutes away by air. 2.57 million live in Manchester alone,
and 7 million in the north west region of England. Tabular information
relating to the numbers of job seekers, situations vacant and unfilled
vacancies current as to July 1999 is available. Employment figures show
that the North West is currently well above national employment figures
as a whole, with most jobs being in the service sector. Manufacturing
is still strong in the area, reflecting the historical origins
of the city as an industrial centre.
