The unemployment rate was unchanged from the August to October period, although the number of unemployed rose by 7,000 from the three-month stretch of August to October.
Total pay and regular pay rose 1.2 percent in November through January compared to the same period a year earlier, ONS said.
"However, as inflation measured by the Consumer Prices Index was 2.7 percent between January 2012 and January 2013, there continues to be a cut in the real value of pay," the monthly report said.
