Strategy Annual Reports

Many of the statistics contained in the Strategy for the Financial Services Industry Annual Report are derived from surveys conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).The Business Register and Employment Survey(BRES) has replaced and integrated two existing ONS business surveys, the Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) and the Business Register Survey (BRS). The Scottish Government has access to these ONS datasets and can produce bespoke analyses such as those for the financial services industry contained in the Strategy.

BRES and Labour Force Survey (LFS) data are available to download from NOMIS, which is a web database providing information and access to a range of official labour market statistics: www.nomisweb.co.uk. However, if you cannot obtain the information you require from NOMIS you can submit an information request to labour-market.statistics@scotland.gsi.gov.uk."
