However, the Office of National Statistics does publish claimant counts of people receiving out of work benefits, be that legacy Jobseeker’s Allowance or Universal Credit as a proportion of people over 16. These figures are usually updated once a month and are for Local Authority Districts and Unitary Authority Districts. So below are the figures of Huntingdonshire.
Area Unemployed Yearly Change
Huntingdonshire 2.2% -0.1%
East of England 3% -0.3%

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 Warboys.
