Number of people unemployed in the UK 1971-2020

There were approximately 1.69 million unemployed people in the United Kingdom in the three months leading up to October 2020, which is the highest number since February 2016, when there were just 1.7 million unemployed. The rise in unemployment in Summer 2020 can be attributed to the Coronavirus pandemic and closure of large parts of the UK economy.
