Profile
This concept tracks the total number of people who have filed jobless claims with the appropriate government labor office, typically, in order to receive unemployment benefits. This is also sometimes referred to as "registered unemployment". The unemployment claims rate measures the number of people filing jobless claims as a percent of (most generally) the labor force (the total number of employed plus unemployed). The headline measure of the Claimant Count has been changed to include claimants of Universal Credit as of 17th June 2015. To view the UK Claimant Count Rate excluding the Universal Credit Adjustment please see {UKUEXUNC Index DES<GO>}. More information on this adjustment can be found here: {http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/method-quality/specific/labour-market/ar ticles-and-reports/jobseeker-s-allowance--universal-credit-and-the-claimant-coun t--changes-to-the-measurement-of-the-claimant-count.pdf}
