Mr. Hepburn: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) the UK were employed by agencies in each year since 1997. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question on how many people in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) the UK have been employed by agencies in each year since 1997. (181295)
The answer was compiled using the most up to date datasets available. Annual estimates are compiled from the annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the Annual Population Survey (APS).
The attached table gives figures of those (i) aged 16+ (ii) of working age (males 16-64, females 16-59) employed by agencies, resident in the UK, North East, South Tyneside and Jarrow constituency for the 12 months ending February 1998 to 2003, from the LFS and for the 12 months ending March 2004 to 2007, from the APS. Comparable estimates are not available before 1998.
The LFS estimates at this detailed level are only consistent with the UK population estimates published in February and March 2003 and they do not incorporate the more recent population estimates that are used in the monthly Labour Market Statistics First Release.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
