|Full name:||Economic Position (Economic Activity) 2001|
|General description:||Classification of economic position distinguishes primarily between the economically active and the economically inactive according to whether a person is or is not a member of the labour force at some reference in time. It applies to people aged 16 to 74.|
The classification is based on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) definition of economic activity and is an ONS harmonised survey classification.
In 2001, unlike 1991, economically active full-time students were categorised separately from the rest of the economically active population.
