Job creation and regional change under New Labour: a shift-share analysis
AbstractThe paper examines changes in UK regional employment during the period of the New Labour administration, 1997–2010, with the Blair and Brown administrations considered separately. The paper employs a shift-share analysis of workplace employment data by industry and subregion, using annual data from the UK Labour Force Survey. The results reveal significant regional shifts, with interesting spatial dynamics in and around the capital and resilient employment growth in the provinces. Keywords: shift-share analysis, workplace employment, labour-force survey, New Labour
