Executive summary

Northern Ireland remains one of the most disadvantaged regions in the United Kingdom with a low level of labour productivity and a high number of economically inactive individuals. Youth unemployment, which has more than doubled since 2008, alongside high rates of unemployment among older workers (up by some 184%) also represent significant labour market challenges.
