  1. A few things. Firstly, excuse my lack of knowledge, but what is meant by ‘Elementary Occupations’? Secondly, are zero hour contracts and workfare included in these hours, seeing as they are included in the offical employment figures? Lastly, I assume that overall these figures would drop for the years 2010-2013. What percentage they would drop by would be the interesting part.

    Yes, zero hours contract jobs are included, because they are jobs, despite there being no guaranteed wage or salary. This type of employment is actually centuries old.

    Workfare is not counted in these figures, because people are still in receipt of JSA whilst undertaking it.

    You would be comparing a five year period there with a four year one. I think you need to look at each month in a year individually and compare this off flow category with the total number of on flows within that month or do so, in the same way, on an annual basis.
