This Official Statistics publication presents data on the Scottish Government’s workforce for each quarter from 2012. The statistics show: numbers of directly employed staff by category, numbers of non-directly employed workers by category, staff sickness absence, and staff diversity information. A full publication with commentary is released annually in March, covering data to the end of the previous calendar year. Quarterly updates to the tables and charts in the publication are released in June, September, and December.
Data published after September 2016 can be found on our new beta.gov.scot website
