Abstract

Access to Jobcentre Plus services may be one way of overcoming any disadvantage that Ethnic Minorities may experience in the labour market and the extent to which Jobcentre Plus delivers ethnic parity in labour market outcomes from its services is of clear policy interest. This exhaustive study estimates the extent of ethnic parity in employment and benefit outcomes for 2,658 different Ethnic Minority subgroups accessing a range of Jobcentre Plus services and programmes in 2003 (including IB; IS; JSA; NDLP; ND25+; NDYP). All the analysis uses data from the Work and Pensions Longitudinal Study (WPLS), which contains longitudinal (spell-based) information on individuals’ work, benefit and pension histories. Data within the WPLS come from administrative data on benefit claims (DWP); administrative data on employment, earnings, savings, tax credits and pensions (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC)); and operational data on customers’ activities (e.g. participation in back-to-work programmes) (Jobcentre Plus).
