New Quarterly Labour Market Report from FAI and SCER

A new report, produced by the Fraser of Allander Institute and the Scottish Centre for Employment Research, will provide a quarterly update on key trends and developments in the Scottish Labour Market.

The Quarterly Labour Market Report aims to help key stakeholders to understand what the latest data tell us about what is happening in the Scottish Labour Market as well as highlighting some of the ongoing research into these issues that is being undertaken at the University of Strathclyde.

Recent headline indicators of employment and unemployment have brought some much needed good news about the Scottish economy. Yet some of these recent trends - including this week's further fall in unemployment - are masking a number of underlying challenges as this report illustrates. This report also identifies the impact of rising inflation on earnings and household incomes as a key factor affecting the Scottish labour market over the next 6 - 12 months.
