REASON FOR UNEMPLOYMENT
(EXPANDED)

This data item provides detailed reasons for someone's unemployment.

Reason for unemployment is not recorded for people who last worked over 2 years ago or have never worked before (see Whether worked full-time for 2 weeks or more [FTJSTATC]).

Broad reasons for unemployment ('job leaver' or 'job loser') are provided in Reason for unemployment (basic) [REASUNCB].

Reason for unemployment data is only collected in the 'quarterly' labour force survey months: February, May, August and November (the second month of each financial year quarter).
