Updated Northern Ireland indicators

  • Blue collar jobs:
    • first graph (over time by industry): while the total number of jobs is higher than a decade ago, the number of jobs in manufacturing, construction and other production industries is somewhat lower.
    • second graph (over time within production): whilst manufacturing has been declining, the number of jobs in construction is similar to a decade ago.
    • third graph (over time by gender): the number of jobs is higher than a decade ago for both men and women and for both full-time and part-time work.
    • fourth graph (shares by gender): almost half of full-time male jobs are in production industries, compared to one in ten full-time female jobs and part-time jobs.
    • fifth graph (shares by industry): manufacturing, construction and other production industries are the areas which are dominated by full-time male jobs.
    • seventh graph (compared to Great Britain – trends): the pattern of an increase in total jobs, combined with a decrease in the number of jobs in the production industries, has occurred throughout Great Britain as well as in Northern Ireland.
    • eighth graph (compared to Great Britain – shares): Northern Ireland has a slighter – but only slightly – larger proportion of its jobs in the public sector than most of the regions of Great Britain.
  • Mental health:
    • first graph (by gender and work status): people who are working are at much lower risk of mental illness than those who are either unemployed or long-term sick or disabled.
