Statisticians to explore effect of Brexit on workers

The Office for National Statistics has said it plans to look at the impact of migration on the labour market as the UK draws closer to exiting the European Union.

Hugh Stickland, head of strategy and communications at the ONS, said at the Royal Statistical Society’s annual conference in Glasgow on 5 September that, with permission from the Home Office, the ONS would explore the role of migrants on the labour market.

Another focus will be to further investigate suicide risks in relation to occupations. Stickland said that research carried out by the ONS in March 2017 showed that those working in lower skilled jobs are at the greatest risk of taking their own lives.
