sources

regional and strategic purposes

To consider means to share data
The NINO dataset is produced quarterly by DWP:
 Advantages
– updated every quarter
– easy to access
– breaks down by nationality and Local Authority
District
– trend data back several years
– comprehensive, operational data rather than a
survey
 Disadvantages
– doesn’t take de-registrations into account
– very limited demographic data
– focus is on employment issues
Number of economic migrants in the North East
The Workers’ Registration Scheme is operated by the
Employment Service
 Advantages
– updated every quarter
– breaks down by nationality and Local Authority
District
– trend data back several years
– covers a useful range of variables – age,
industry, occupational level, dependents, length
of stay, hours worked per week, gender – as well
as nationality and location
 Disadvantages
– limited to A2 and A8 countries
– only accessible with a .gov.uk e-mail address
– limited to employees of those companies which
have registered for WRS - a voluntary process

HESA publishes data about numbers of students in the
region

Advantages
– updated annually
– data published by University and by subject of
study
– data also shows disability (by category) and level
of qualification

Disadvantages

Numbers of students at NE Universities 2005-06
NHS publishes data about numbers of people registered
with individual GPs

Advantages
