Where in the country are all the zero hours contracts?

The number of people employed on zero hours contracts rose to over 800,000 last year, according to new ONS Labour Market Survey figures - and could increase to one million.

The figure was 801,000, an increase of more than 100,000 than the year previous.

The above map shows the breakdown for October to December 2015, where the highest proportion of the population were on zero hours contracts was 3.8 per cent in the North West and 3.6 per cent in the South West.

The most people for any region were found in the South East, where 110,000 people were on zero hours, but due to the greater population density of the South East, this only represents 2.5 per cent of the population.
