Each month the unit produces a Worcestershire County Economic Summary containing the most up to date unemployment data for Worcestershire. Included in the document  local and national economic news, unemployment data at ward, district and county level with an indication of how the pattern is changing over time and a comparison with the regional and national picture.

Local Economic Assessment

The  Local Economic Assessment provides local authorities, businesses and partners with a comprehensive picture of local economic conditions and priorities. This will strengthen their ability to make informed decisions which have the potential to benefit the local economy, whilst contributing to the delivery of sustainable economic development. The report contains key facts, figures and analysis that will help businesses, the public sector and other organisations to chart a course to recovery following the national recession.
