Other information:

People aged 40-69 and in employment in 2001 were less likely to still be in work at 2011 if they lived in an area of high unemployment. This was true regardless of whether their stated reason for being out of work at 2011 was that they were ‘retired’ or due to ‘sickness or disability’.

People who rated their health as ‘poor’ were almost 6 times more likely to be out of work at 2011 than those in ‘good’ health.

Health and area unemployment independently predicted being out of work. Those in ‘good’ or ‘fairly good’ health were more likely to be out of work if living in an area with high unemployment, whereas those in ‘poor’ health were more likely to be out work regardless of local employment levels.
