I thought I would share with you all some figures I received from the House of Commons Library.
The total number of unemployed claimants in Birmingham, Hodge Hill constituency in February 2016 was 3,814.
This represents a rate of 8.5% of the economically active population aged 16 to 64, the 4th highest of the 650 UK constituencies. (1st = highest claimant rate, 650th = lowest claimant rate.) The equivalent UK claimant rate was 2.5%.
