APPENDIX II
UNEMPLOYMENT

The number of workers registered as unemployed in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, at the end of 1928, was 1,565,000, of whom 1,211,000 were men and 275,000 women. At the end of January 1929 there had been a seasonal fall to a total of 1,434,000, including 1,113,000 men and 236,000 women. Roughly, we may take the numbers of the registered unemployed as one and a half millions, excluding those in trades not covered by the Unemployment Insurance Acts. This number is equivalent to about 12 per cent of the total number of insured workers.

Since December 1921, the first date for which roughly comparable figures are available, the number unemployed has not, at the end of any month, fallen below one million. The following table gives the figures for the end of each quarter.
