Disability hate crime prosecutions plummet, while Home Office stays silent – | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The number of cases of disability hate crime prosecuted in court has plunged by nearly 40 per cent in just one year, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) figures have revealed.

The fall appears to be the result of a steep fall in the number of cases referred to prosecutors by police forces, with one leading disabled campaigner saying the figures showed the police “failing disabled people yet again”.

It is the third year in a row that the number of disability hate crime prosecutions has fallen steeply and the figures have caused alarm among disabled campaigners.

What To Do If Your Friend Is In An Abusive Relationship

In the UK, more than 2.4 million adults experience domestic violence annually, according to the Crime Survey for England and Wales, and even more people may be at risk right now, with COVID-19 keeping people at home.

IMF World Economic Outlook predicts 'deep recession' with 4.4% global contraction

IMF World Economic Outlook predicts 'deep recession' with 4.4% global contraction | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
In its latest, unsurprising but painful prognostication, the IMF World Economic Outlook projected what it described as a ‘deep recession’, with global growth expected to fall to -4.4%.

Speaking ahead of the WEO forecast, IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath said:

“So we continue to project a deep recession in 2020 with global growth projected to be -4.4%.  This is a small upgrade relative to our June numbers. We expect growth to rebound partially in 2021, coming back to 5.2 percent. However, with the exception of China, all advanced economies and emerging and developing economies, excluding China we are projecting output will remain below 2019 levels well into 2021. Therefore, we see that the recovery from this catastrophic collapse will likely be long and even highly uncertain,”

Measuring the labour market during the pandemic | National Statistical | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
A challenge faced by the ONS during the pandemic is the inability to conduct face-to-face household interviews, having to rely on telephone surveys instead. So we’ve been exploring how this might have affected responses to our Labour Force Survey on which the key UK employment data are based.  Jonathan Athow explains what we have found and how we plan to tackle it.

Continuing to collect and publish our regular statistics has clearly been challenging in recent months, but a challenge we have successfully met. Alongside our usual publications, we have also launched new surveys, such as the Business Impacts of Coronavirus Survey, utilised new data sources, such as online job adverts from Adzuna, and expanded existing data to give weekly estimates from the Labour Force Survey and flash employee estimates from payroll tax datagive fresh insight into the pandemic’s impacts on our society and economy.

NRLA launched its campaign for political parties to commit to expanding the evidence base for housing by introducing a Welsh Housing Survey (WHS).

The global economy is climbing out from the depths to which it had plummeted during the Great Lockdown in April. But with the COVID-19 pan- demic continuing to spread, many countries have slowed reopening and some are reinstating partial lockdowns to protect susceptible populations. While recovery in China has been faster than expected, the global economy’s long ascent back to pre-pandemic levels of activity remains prone to setbacks.

Covid-19 accelerating automation; hospitality and manufacturing hardest hit | E&T Magazine

Covid-19 accelerating automation; hospitality and manufacturing hardest hit | E&T Magazine | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
A report from the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce (RSA) has examined the impact of accelerated automation amid the coronavirus pandemic on the labour market, concluding that jobs in hospitality and manufacturing may be hardest hit.

The coronavirus pandemic and the measures taken to manage it have pushed sectors such as aviation and live arts and entertainment events to the brink, with many people working in these sectors forced to reconsider their futures.

According to the RSA, the coronavirus pandemic is accelerating automation. This “rise of the robots” is largely motivated by a need to reduce Covid-19 transmission by minimising human contact, but also increasing consumer acceptance of online shopping and online activities (e.g. Zoom exercise classes) and the cost of labour under pandemic conditions (machines can work in close proximity to each other and do not require sick pay).
