DURATION OF UNEMPLOYMENT

<< Previous Section: Unemployment


DURATION OF UNEMPLOYMENT
(SINCE ANY PREVIOUS FULL-TIME WORK - BASIC)

This data item identifies whether someone is classed as being 'short-term' or 'long-term' unemployed since their last full-time job. It is based on the number of weeks they have been unemployed and looking for work, disregarding any periods of part-time employment.

If they have never been employed full-time before, the duration is simply the number of weeks they have been looking for their first full-time job.

If they have been unemployed for less than 52 weeks, they are considered to be short-term unemployed. Those that have been looking for a full-time job for 52 weeks or longer are classified as long-term unemployed.

The detailed number of weeks someone has been unemployed since their last full-time job are provided in Duration of unemployment (since any previous full-time work - expanded) [DURUNFCE].
