     Unemployment in   London 2011 has decreased for the third month in a row in 2011 and according   to the statistics and percentages it remains steady at 7.7%, a fall from 7.9%   in the previous quarter, causing a fast pace drop in unemployment. This means   that number of people unemployed in London is has lower from 1,000 jobless   individuals. The total number of unwaged citizens has fallen by 88,000 over   the quarter and has now reached 2.43 million.




    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published statistics that show the   fastest drop in unemployment in a decade.

    Previous month in London was faced with a rise of people claiming the   unemployment benefit. The total number of people was calculated upto 4,500 to   20,000 people.




    Work and Pensions Minister Chris Grayling said: "It's been a difficult   few months in the labour market but things do now seem to be stabilising. The   rise in the number of vacancies is particularly encouraging."




    The drop of unemployment with the fall of 88,000 resulted in its lowering   down to 2.43 million. This fall is considered to be the largest drop since   the summer of 2000.

    Though the unemployment statistics and percentage in the UK for 2011   declined but at the same time the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s   Allowance rose by 19,600 to 1.49 million.
