Mr. Allan Stewart

The occupational analysis of unemployed registrants was compiled quarterly in March, June, September and December until September 1982 when it was discontinued. The number of teachers registered as unemployed in Scotland in the primary and secondary sectors in March 1979 was 678 and 391 respectively and in September 1982 2,516 and 1,335 respectively.
