Down over 4,000 from the month before. New jobs or emigration?

Part time Xmas work + emigration I would say. Its good news though.

Instead of using "stabilisation" term we should now use "long term unemployed now stands north of 400,000 " :(

Unemployment figures mean nothing at the moment. Too many people leaving the country tbh. The employment figure are the ones to watch. Expect the government spin machine to have got these figures in advance and go into overdrive with corner turning and green shoots galore.

Why don't the CSO carry out proper research on the number of people emigrating and a qualitative study on where they are going and what skills they are taking with them. It is not acceptable that we should rely on anecdotes.

The Live Register is not designed to measure unemployment. It includes part-time workers, seasonal and casual workers entitled to Jobseekers Benefit or Allowance. Unemployment is measured by the Quarterly National Household Survey and the latest seasonally adjusted figure for April to June 2010 is 284,500 persons unemployed.

God the OPs are really getting lazy around here....it's not unreasonable to expect a certain level of effort be made...:roll:

19,000 New Entrants to Job Seekers Benefits, 23,000 Exited Job Seekers Benefits

20,000 New Entrants to Job Seekers Appications, 20,000 Exited JSA

Most JSB people that exited that scheme, entered the JSA scheme. A lot though would have ran out of benefits or were moved to other schemes that are not counted in the Live Register.

At least 10,000 people would have emigrated in November. Total Job Creation in November was between 2,000 and 5,000.

The Quarterly Household National Survey is out later this month. It will reveal the true extent of the employment situation.

Indeed. But it is estimated monthly based on the Live rRegister and the last QNHS

That would require a willingness on the part of the CSO's political masters to have that information in the public domain.

The number of non-irish claimants has dropped significantly since the start of the year.

That suggests significant emigration to me.

"In the year to November 2010 the number of long term male claimants increased by 43,105 (+64.1%), while the comparable increase for females was 15,875 (+66.0%)." (page 3).

There is another cohort that you could include Cato.Those who have reached the end of their 12 month period of UB payment and do not qualify/apply for UA.

Absolutely, large numbers do not qualify for Job seekers Allowance due to partners earning, significant increase of people on Ill health payments,

In November all nationality classes fell with the exception of the East Europeans which rose substantially.

Where is Tonic and Goosebump and Petervalhahaha and Odious1 and all the other government sycophants to remind us that we are living in the hauty halcyon utopia of the Hibernian 21st century wonderland with these "statistics"?
