REASON FOR UNEMPLOYMENT
This data item provides a (simplified) reason for someone's unemployment - whether they were a 'job leaver' or a 'job loser.'
Reason for unemployment is not recorded for people who last worked over 2 years ago ('Former worker') or have never worked before (see Whether worked full-time for 2 weeks or more [FTJSTATC]).
More detailed reasons for unemployment are provided in Reason for unemployment (expanded) [REASUNCE].
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).
