1. Figures have been rounded to the nearest hundred. Total employment has been rounded to the nearest thousand. Percentages are based on unrounded figures.

2. Public sector financial institutions include Northern Rock (classified to the public sector from Q4 2007), Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc, HBOS/Lloyds Banking Group plc (both classified to the public sector from Q4 2008) Lloyds TSB Commercial Banking. Those organisations classified as Public Sector Financial Institutions and SIC 64.

3. Public sector is derived as the difference between the Labour Force Survey 'Total employment' workforce based estimate for the whole of Scotland (not seasonally adjusted) and the public sector estimate (derived from indivdual organisation statistical returns). For Q1 the Feb-Apr 2013 rolling estimate from the LFS was used.
