The 2021 census had data on people who were economically active (seeking work) yet unemployed on Census day (Sunday March 21st 2021). These statitics do cover Epsom on a ward level. However, it has to be noted that the Census day was during the height of the Covid19 pandemic and therefore are not reflective of normal levels of unemployment.

This data also contains the proportion of people in part-time work (working between 1-35 hours per week), which maybe an indicator of under employment in Epsom.
