Royal Borough has lowest percentage of 'workless households' in UK

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has had the lowest proportion of 'workless households' in the UK over the past four years, according to new data.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics, released yesterday, show the area had the lowest percentage of households where no-one aged 16 and over is in employment between 2011-2015.

The figures show just 7.3 per cent of households in the borough were defined as 'workless' in 2015, down from 11.5 per cent in 2010.

Liverpool had the highest proportion of workless households with 28.8 per cent in 2015.

Wokingham (3rd) and Buckinghamshire (5th) were also among the local authorities with the lowest percentage, with West Berkshire and Merton also in the top five.
