28 February 2013

The aim of this report is to provide a comprehensive statistical analysis of firms and jobs in the Greater London area. The analysis covers a range of key indicators, including headline numbers of firms and jobs in the private sector and their pattern of change between 1997 and 2011; the firm size distribution; job creation and destruction; growth rates, and the incidence of high growth firms. The report analyses the pattern of firms and jobs by sector and borough and also discusses alternative measures of jobs in London using other data sources.
