United Kingdom (UK) unemployment rate, by gender 2000-2017 This statistic shows the unemployment rate as a percentage of the total workforce, by gender, in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2000 to 2017. The rate for women was consistently lower than that of men during this time period. With a low of 4.3 percent in 2004 and a high in 2012 of 7.5 percent, the trend for women is an upward one. Likewise for men, who had a low of 5.1 percent, also in 2004, and a peak in 2010 and 2011 at 8.7 percent. Since 2012 both genders have experienced a negative trend to unemployment.
