Details

This technical annex contains statistical analysis on work, health and disability in the UK to support improving lives: the work, health and disability green paper (consultation).

It brings together existing evidence on work, health and disability alongside new analysis on the following:

  • statistical analysis on work, health and disability using the Labour Force Survey
  • longitudinal analysis of disability and employment status using the Labour Force Survey
  • segmentation analysis of the disabled population using the Annual Population Survey, including segmentation of local authority by disabled population statistics
  • estimates of long-term sickness absence
  • the economic cost of ill health at working ages
  • Employment and Support Allowance customer journeys

We have also published the underlying tables (in Excel and ODS format) that contain all of the new statistics from the technical annex data pack.

The consultation closed on Friday 17 February 2017.

  1. Published a revised technical annex, page 13 amended to make it clearer that it is the size of the workplace, rather than the overall employer or organisation, that is being referred to. Chart 1.22 also amended to correct an issue with where the UK average was shown on the graph. The XLS and ODS data tables have also been revised - the word ‘workplaces’ has replaced ‘organisation’ in supplementary table 1h.
  2. Revised technical annex, with the following changes: the years in the sources for charts 1.4 and 1.5 have been corrected to Q2 2013 to Q2 2016. In chart 1.13, the axis label has been amended so that large is ‘more than 250’ and chart 1.22 corrected to add in the South East. The source for chart 2.2 has been corrected so it reads LFS Q2 2013 to Q2 2016 and the axis are in 1000s. On page 45, the sources have been added to the charts. The grey text boxes have been removed from the ESA charts on pages 53 and 54. On pages 57 and 58, the origin hierarchy has been amended so that Employment is above JSA. In the XLS and ODS data tables, the private and public sectors were mislabelled in table 1j. These have been corrected.
  3. Published a revised technical annex, this includes a new version of chart 2.3 'Numbers of working age disabled people by main reported health condition, UK'. Also published revised XLS and ODS tables, the ‘other_data_sources’ tab has been revised to correct the hyperlinks for table 1.1, chart 2.1 and chart 2.2.
  4. First published.
