London’s Poverty Profile

Unemployment ratio by borough

What does this chart show?

The unemployment ratio is the proportion of the working-age population that is unemployed. This graph shows that the ratio has come down significantly in almost all London boroughs in a relatively short timescale. The exceptions are Kensington & Chelsea and Richmond, where there have been slight increases.

The percentage change in the unemployment ratio is drawn out in the graph below.
