Labour Market Statistics User Group: changes in labour demand - a look at the labour market by industry25 November 2010BIS Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street, London

25 November 2010, 2:30-4:30pm

The labour market has been through a time of change as the economy has gone into and come out of recession. Different industries have been affected in different ways and being able to analyse this can provide further insight on the demand side of the labour market. During this period a new industrial classification (Standard Industrial Classification 2007) has been introduced which provides an improved breakdown of industries, but also challenges in following trends over a long time period.

This session will look at the impact of the new industrial classification on labour market outputs and also provide analysis by industry on earnings, jobs and hours. Speakers will include:

  • Ole Black (ONS) - Sponsor of SIC2007 project
  • Steffan Hess (ONS) - Moving Workforce Jobs to SIC2007
  • Craig Barratt (BIS) - Hours worked: What lies beneath?
  • TBC (Low Pay Commission) - Job sectors and low pay
