Abstract

G reen A. E. and L ivanos I. Involuntary non-standard employment and the economic crisis: regional insights from the UK, Regional Studies . Increases in unemployment and non-employment in the 2008-2009 economic crisis were less marked than expected in the UK given experience of previous recessions. To capture more fully the regional dimensions of economic crisis it is necessary to look also at employment. Using Labour Force Survey (LFS) data on involuntary part-time working and involuntary temporary working a measure of involuntary non-standard employment (INE) is constructed. Econometric analyses reveal that there were rises in INE alongside unemployment increases in the economic crisis and that young people, individuals from non-white ethnic groups and those in weak regional economies were particularly at risk of INE.
