UK Industry Overview
Updated over a week ago

The industry overview is used to understand more about a particular industry in a specific region. The overview will provide the user with jobs counts, change and average earnings.

In addition to this, the overview will also provide the user with more information about regional trends, staffing patterns and demographics.

In addition to this, the overview will also provide the user with more information about regional trends, staffing patterns and demographics.

Selecting an industry can be done by choosing to search for it by clicking on either the Groups or Browse button. The difference between the ‘Groups’ and ‘Browse’ functions is that ‘Groups’ allows the user to select predefined categories of industry or regions, details of which can be found here for industries. We have used the Local Enterprise Partnerships as the predefined geographies for regions . The ‘Browse’ function enables the user to create tailored searches, facilitating more unique and powerful searches.

By searching through Browse the user will be able to select the required industries which are presented using the Standard Industries Classification (SIC) codes. These can be filtered by adjusting the criteria to the 4 digit levels of a SIC code.

By searching using the Group button the user can search using our predefined industry sector clusters.

Once the user has selected the desired industries it will now be necessary to define the region or area within which to search.

There are four options available to the user: Browse, Groups, Radius from address and Drive Time.

By selecting Drive Time the user will see the industry data built around the time it would take to drive to/from a specified location. This is more commonly known as a ‘Travel to Work Area’, or TTWA.

Similarly, by selecting ‘Radius from Address’ the user can search for industries around a specific location to a desired radius in miles.

By selecting ‘Groups’ the user can search using our predefined areas. These areas replicate Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Government Office regions.

Finally, by selecting “Browse’ the user can search and create areas of their choosing. By clicking on the first drop down box the user can search and subsequently select by; Country, Government Office region, County/Unitary Authority, Local Authority areas. This allows the user to create unique searches that may be required for regional comparative analysis for example.

In this example we will explore the Tourism & Leisure industries in Hampshire.

From the Industry Overview page click on Groups and start to type Tourism & Leisure.

As you type the most relevant groups will appear below. Choose the one(s) you wish to explore by ticking the appropriate box and confirming your choice by pressing the Select button at the bottom left of the screen

Now define the region you wish to review this industry group. From the Industry Overview screen click on Browse in the Select a Region section

As you are looking for the county of Hampshire change the first Browse criteria to County/Unitary Authority.

Begin typing in the search box and tick the relevant boxes. Remember to confirm your choice by clicking on the select button on the bottom of the page.

You will return to the Industry Overview page where you can see the search criteria displayed; the industries and the specific geography being searched. Hit the run button.

You will now see the report that is generated relating to your search. On the left of the screen you will see the search criteria you selected and further options to refine the search results further. The report can be saved in Analyst so you can come back to it again or share it with your team. It can also be exported. Each section of the report can be saved or removed by clicking on the three dots adjacent to each section.
