Annual population survey: results for year to 31 March 2019

The APS combines results from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the English, Welsh and Scottish Labour Force Survey boosts and provides rolling four-quarter labour market information for UK countries, regions and local areas.

It is the primary source for information on local labour markets providing headline estimates on employment, unemployment and economic inactivity.

The APS is the largest annual household survey in Scotland and provides a wealth of information about individuals' personal circumstances and their work.
