Unemployment fell in the North West by 23,000 in the last three months to September.
Official figures from the Office of National Statistics show a total number of 219,000 people were unemployed in the North West between July and September. The good news is that a record number of people are in work after a substantial fall in unemployment.
The South East is showing a rise in the number of people without a job with a 9,000 increase over the same period.
Workers pay including bonuses has increased by 1% over the last year.
Employment Minister Esther McVey said: "Record numbers of people in work means more people with the security of a regular wage who are better able to support themselves and their families.
"With the vast majority of the rise in employment over the last year being full-time, it's clear that thanks to the Government's long-term economic plan, we are helping businesses to create the jobs that people need.
"More young people are getting their foot on the career ladder and we've seen record falls in female unemployment, so as the economy continues to grow, more and more people are having their lives transformed by moving into work."
