At the end of July, 1.6 million people were still on furlough, the lowest level since the start of the pandemic and 340,000 fewer than a month earlier.
But older people and the travel sector did less well, with half of eligible travel workers still on the scheme.
The Resolution Foundation said the numbers of people coming off furlough had "slowed to a trickle".
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, 11.6 million workers have benefited from the government programme, which is due to be wound up at the end of this month.

There had been "a striking fall" in the number of young people on furlough, the Treasury said.
A total of 121,600 people aged 18 to 34 came off the scheme during the months of June and July, it added.

Numbers furloughed from these sectors declined by 26,200 and 96,700 in July respectively.
