Chief Commissioner Dr Michael Wardlow talks with Economist John Simpson about improvements to the composition of the monitored workforce and the challenges ahead.
This year’s report
shows the Protestant share of the monitored workforce was [53.4%] and the Roman Catholic share was [46.6%].
Comparing to data from the Census and the Labour Force Survey estimates, our analysis
shows the Northern Ireland monitored workforce now more closely mirrors the estimates of the community background of those available for work than when fair employment monitoring was first introduced.
For the first time the report is broken down into sections for ease of navigation, with a short overview in the summary paper.
