The current economic climate remains difficult for Wales as economic headwinds buffet the United Kingdom and the global economy. Welsh policymaking operates within the wider UK context and is particularly influenced by policies on childcare provision, international student recruitment, and economic migration. But economic policy options tailored for Wales can only be based on evidence that catalogues and responds to the distinct profile of the Welsh labour market. This report brings together various analyses that are often carried out in isolation: labour market headline figures, gender differences, ethnic and country of origin differences, and higher education data. They show the connections between these factors, and how systemic differences mean that economic shocks impact individuals in varied ways, according to their gender, age, and a host of other factors.
