Employment Projections to 2031

GLA Economics has published four papers (two technical papers and two working papers) that describe its updated employment projections out to 2031 and which appeared in the recently published Economic Evidence Base.

Economic Impact of Traffic Signals

This report seeks to better understand the wider economic impact of traffic signals in London by modelling actual traffic flows at a selection of signalised junctions in London during different times of the day.

London's Economic Outlook: Autumn 2009

GLA Economics’ fifteenth London forecast suggests that London’s Gross Value Added (GVA) growth rate should fall to -3.5 per cent in 2009. London is likely to see contractions in employment in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Economic Evidence Base - October 2009

The latest Economic Evidence Base document supports the public consultation drafts of the three Mayoral strategies currently being revised: the London Plan, the Economic Development Strategy and the Transport Strategy.

Local Area Tourism Impact model

The London Development Agency's Local Area Tourism Impact (LATI) model (LDA website) takes London-level data from the major national surveys (International Passenger Survey, UK Tourism Survey) and new data on day visitors from an omnibus survey, and distributes it across the boroughs. The results provide borough-level estimates of tourism volume and value to inform tourism policy development, investment and marketing.

Working Paper 37: London's logistics sector

This report provides a descriptive overview of the logistics sector and its importance to the London economy. It explores how the sector operates in London compared with the rest of the UK, the geographic extent of logistics jobs across London, the nature of logistics businesses (size, occupations, qualifications, skill requirements, labour market) as well as specifically covering the sectors contribution to GVA and employment in London.

Working Paper 36: Commuting patterns in London by qualification level and employment location

The purpose of this report is to explore whether there is a relationship between qualification level and distance travelled to work and to understand the role of geography in employment rates and access to work.

Economic impact on the London and UK economy of an earned regularisation of irregular migrants to the UK

In 2007, the UK provided a home to an estimated 618,000 irregular migrants - of these 442,000 live in London. GLA Economics commissioned the London School of Economics to research the potential economic impact of allowing those with an irregular status to become regularised based on two criteria - residency in the UK of at least 5 years and no serious criminal record.

A Fairer London: The 2009 Living Wage in London

This fifth annual report from a programme of research by the Living Wage Unit takes a systematic approach to identify what is a living wage in London. The result is a London Living Wage of £7.60 per hour.
