Local Economic Assessment data and reports

The UK has a productivity gap with output per hour below the average for the rest of the G7 major industrialised countries. In Dorset, for every hour worked we produce almost 21% less than the UK average.

All data relates to statistics that pre-date Covid unless stated otherwise

Businesses

  • Although business survival is good, we have fewer than average business births: 73 to every 10,000 residents aged 16-64 compared with 100 in England1.
  • And we have smaller business units: just 7.3 employees per business unit compared with 9.5 in England2.
  • Whilst large firms represent less than one per cent of Dorset’s business stock, they employ about a fifth of the workforce. Ensuring the availability of suitable employment land like the Dorset Innovation Park to offer larger sites and units gives local firms the chance to expand and relocate here, rather than leave the area. It also offers choice to new businesses considering a move to Dorset, bringing new jobs with them.
  • Dorset is less competitive than the national average. In recent years competitiveness has worsened, with all parts of Dorset becoming less competitive. Only the former district areas of East Dorset and West Dorset rank at or above the median for the country. The former area of Weymouth & Portland ranks 372 out of 379 localities and Purbeck is among the ten areas reporting the greatest fall in competitiveness ranking4.
  • Whilst we have above national average representation of advanced engineering and of manufacturing as a whole, we have low representation of businesses in high productivity sectors2 and also below average representation in high R&D spending sectors5.
  • Self-employment is high in Dorset: about 18% of economically active residents compared with 14% in England6.

People

  • Employment is expected to grow by more than 11,000 in Dorset over 2019-297 - but most of this new employment will be part time
  • Manufacturing, health, retail, education and hospitality are all big employers in Dorset.
  • 45% of skills required by employers over the next decade are for level 4 and above7.
  • 14 neighbourhoods in Dorset are in the most deprived 20% nationally for employment8 - 10 of these are in the former borough of Weymouth & Portland.
  • Earnings are below average. Median gross weekly pay for full time employees was £537 for Dorset workers compared with £587 in Great Britain9.
  • 36% of the Dorset workforce is aged over 50 compared with 28% in England10. Older workers have experience and skills and, as more people retire, other workers need training to fill the gaps.
  • Over the next decade, the population in Dorset aged 16-64 will shrink by 0.2% per annum. That’s a net loss of nearly 4,000 people in this age group. The old age dependency ratio, which is the number of people aged 65+ compared to the number of people of working age, is expected to increase from 527 per 1000 in 2019 to 655 per 1000 in 202911.
  • Around 4,000 apprenticeships were started in Dorset in 2018/1912. It is estimated that for every £1 of public monies spent on apprenticeships, an economic benefit of £21 is created13.

What are we doing about it?

The council manages investments in digital and physical connectivity through projects like Superfast Dorset. This project involves the council working with contractors to upgrade the communications infrastructure across the area that will enable most people and businesses to get superfast broadband speeds (24Mbps+).

Investment in the Dorset Innovation Park (Enterprise Zone) near Wool by the Council and Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership has secured hundreds of high quality jobs in engineering and manufacturing, and with the construction of twenty new workshop units. Further investment has been secured to construct an exciting Defence Innovation Centre, working with the Armed Forces, which will be completed in 2021. This will reinforce the objective of developing an advanced engineering cluster of excellence building on strengths in marine, defence and energy.

By means of local procurement, the council can add to social and environmental wellbeing as well as economic value, for example through contracts with firms that ensure sustainable working practices and those offering quality Apprenticeships.

  • Our Communities Bulletin -The Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2019

    07 October 2019

    Our latest Our Communities bitesize bulletin looks at the latest release of the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas in England. It focuses on Dorset Council, what’s changed since the last release in 2015 and how the data can be used. The index is measured at a small area level (called Lower-layer Super Output Areas – LSOAs) in England with an average of 1,500 residents in each. In a national context, Dorset as a whole does not score highly in relation to deprivation. However, we still have pockets of deprivation. Read the report to get the overall picture for Dorset.

    06 October 2017

    According to a report written by the Social Market Foundation, on average, coastal communities are less productive economically than non-coastal communities. They often have lower levels of pay, higher rates of unemployment and have populations with lower skill levels and poorer health. Four of Dorset's district councils are coastal communities, along with Bournemouth and Poole. The socioeconomic picture across Dorset's coastal communities varies considerably. This bulletin looks at why this matters for Dorset.
