Data is rounded to nearest 100

The preferred source of statistics for public sector employment is the Quarterly Public Sector Employment Survey (QPSES), however, figures from this source are not available at constituency level, therefore the APS statistics are provided above. Individuals in the APS are classified according to their responses to the survey. Consequently, the classification of an individual’s sector may differ from how they would be classified in QPSES statistics.
