Latest stats: youth unemployment and vacancies in Camden and London

Last night Camden's Cabinet agreed £2m towards promoting jobs and growth via our 'Camden Plan', extra money redistributed via the council's efficiency programme over the last year.

Latest ONS stats show that long-term youth unemployment (people aged 18-24 claiming JSA for over 12 months from June 2011 to June 2012) has nearly quadrupled in Camden from 50 last year to 195 last month.  The Guardian's datablog provides an interactive map.

Per electoral constituency, the claimant to vacancy rate makes for interesting reading locally.  In Holborn &St.Pancras, demographically (and historically) the poorer part of the borough, the claimant to vacancy ratio is 3.5:1; while in Hampstead and Kilburn this rises to 9.9:1.
