Public Sector Employment Statistics Consultation

The Public Sector Employment (PSE) Statistics publication is a quarterly publication providing updates on latest estimates of employment within the public and private sector in Scotland. Public sector estimates are published at Scotland level by sector including: civil servants, public corporations, NDPBs, other public bodies, NHS and local government categories. Information is also provided by devolved and reserved responsibility.

The latest publication in its current format can be found at the following link:


A user consultation seeking views on proposed changes to the current PSE Statisitcs Publication ran from 31 March to 30 April 2010. The consultation sought feedback from users on the structure, format and presentation of the information contained in the Quarterly Public Sector Employment Statistics publication. A report summarising the findings from the consultation is now available.

On 16th June the next scheduled PSE publication will be published with revised format (as informed through the consultation exercise)
