Abstract

This article examines inequalities across the 45 travel to work areas in Scotland, using four indicators of labour market performance viz. the employment rate; the economic inactivity rate; the percentage holding level 4 (or higher) qualifications; and the percentage having no formal qualifications. The results are then contextualised in a discussion of the possible explanations for these inequalities and their implications for policy.
