August isn’t normally a great month when it comes to unemployment figures. This year however, looking at the economically active population between the ages of 16
and 64, only 830 people were registered unemployed in the actual constituency of Hemel Hempstead. That's 1.5% unemployment, well below the national average.
For the group between the ages of 18 and 24, there were only 140 claimants in August. That's 35 less than the same period in the previous year.
