Employment and Business Trends in the North West

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) recently released data from the Business Register & Employment Survey (BRES) for 2014, as well as 2015 figures from the Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR). BRES allows for analysis of employment trends by detailed geography and industry, with the IDBR providing similar information in terms of business trends.
