Despite weakening economic growth and Brexit clouds, the labour market in the United Kingdom boomed – the total number of unemployed people slid to 1.38 million in 2018, which was 100,000 lower than a year ago. To identify the number of unemployed people in the United Kingdom from 1976 to 2018, CEOWORLD magazine reviewed data from the Office for National Statistics (UK). The statistic below shows the unemployment figure for the United Kingdom from 1976 to 2018.

The number of people unemployed during this period has fluctuated from a high of 3.24 million people in 1984 to a low of 1.38 million people in 2018. The high unemployment figures recorded between 2009 and 2013 happened during the great recession when the UK’s gross domestic product (GDP) contracted by 4.2% between 2008 and 2009.
