UK unemployment rate falls to 3.8%

UK unemployment rate fell to 3.8% in the first three months of 2019. The figures from the Office for National Statistics show that it has never been lowest since the end of 1974.

Also, between January and March 2019, the estimated employment rate:

- for all people was 76.1%, the joint-highest since comparable records began in 1971
- for men was 80.3%; slightly higher than for a year earlier (80.0%)
- for women was 71.8%, the joint-highest since comparable records began in 1971

Estimates for January to March 2019 show 32.70 million people aged 16 years and over in employment, 354,000 more than for a year earlier. This annual increase of 354,000 was due entirely to more people working full-time (up 372,000 on the year to reach 24.11 million). Part-time working showed a small fall of 18,000 on the year to reach 8.59 million.
