Bridgend profile


The Economy Team has produced a profile booklet which provides some useful information on Bridgend County Borough. This is in response to requests from businesses and investors who want to gain a better understanding of the characteristics of the area and its labour market.

For example, did you know that Bridgend County Borough was one of only two local authority areas where the number of people on Jobseekers Allowance fell between 1999 and 2013 and that between 2001 and 2013 Bridgend County Borough had the second highest percentage growth in employment out of the 22 Welsh local authority areas?
