But the labour market report for the three months to November also revealed that NI still has the highest economic inactivity rate in the UK's 12 regions at 25.7%.

It means that 3.8 per cent of people who are looking for work do not have a job, largely unchanged on the previous quarter.

Nonetheless, the employment rate is also at a record level of 72.6%, up 1.1 percentage points on the quarter before.

Meanwhile, the number of people aged between 16 and 64 in employment fell by 1,000, to stand at 2,556,000.

However, it's still the second-lowest rate of employment in the United Kingdom, with the lowest in the north-east of England at 71.4%.

Wulong , Chinese for "dancing dragon", was named after the ingenious pose of the fossil conserved in an impressive way. This is a unique specimen that seems to offer a window into how our planet was about 120 million years ago.

A total of 32.9 million people are now in work in the United Kingdom, a rise of 0.5% for the three months to November.

The Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency, which compiled the report, said: "The continued improvements in the NI labour market are consistent with the United Kingdom experience, where employment was the highest on record, unemployment was joint lowest on record and inactivity was the lowest on record". The number of women working full-time has increased by nearly 10pc since November 2015 - just shy of twice the men's rate. This is 49,000 fewer vacancies than the same period a year earlier. This increase includes bonuses.

'While pay growth has eased since last summer, with inflation remaining subdued, earnings are continuing to increase in real terms, ' Mr Freeman said. In real terms, average regular pay was £472 per week, which is £1, or 0.2 per cent, less than in March 2008.

Minister for employment Mims Davies said: "With unemployment at its lowest since the 1970s, our jobcentres go beyond getting people into work - they are about community and progression".

'This, coupled with business confidence turning a corner, is paving the way for an even stronger jobs market in 2020'.
