A recently published report by London First in association with EY suggested that economic activity in London's night time economy directly supports 723,000 jobs - around one in eight jobs in the capital.

In addition, GLA Economics is currently working with the Office for National Statistics and London Night Time Commission to undertake an analysis of London's Night Time Economy. This work will include an analysis of how many people in London self-report working at night in recent years. A report on the findings will be available in due course.
